The Progressive‘s Media Project helps nonprofits get the word out about timely issues. In the process, they help open up the national debate.
First, the Media Project offers workshops to those from grassroots nonprofits seeking to polish their writing skills and to get inside information on media access (photo at right).
The Project also assists authors in reaching wider readership.
- In just one of the many editorials widely distributed in print and online sources nationwide, Angel Trudell Vasquez from the ACLU wrote a piece entitled “Arizona’s New Immigration Law Is Unjust.” With the help of the Media Project, the piece was distributed to publications with a circulation of 500,000.
- Steve Burns of the Wisconsin Network for Peace and Justice also wrote about Democrats’ poor arguments on the deficit. That piece reached publications with a circulation of 6 million.
