About The Summit
The inaugural BIPOC Community Media Development Summit, held at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C on November 18, was designed to be a call to action for investing in community media as a community development and revitalization strategy.
MMCA’s goal is to build a coalition of the willing that will work to eliminate the blind-spot that has kept the community development financing sector from investing in and partnering with community media – an overlooked but critical and trusted part of the civic infrastructure of local communities.
