Abstract: 
It’s no secret that the current socio-economic and political system doesn’t work for the majority of people, but fewer people know that all across the U.S. and the world, people are building solutions and experimenting with new ways to meet their communities’ needs. One of the biggest news stories of our time is simply not being reported. But who’s going to tell that story? The media that has sold generations on competition, consumerism, capitalism, extractivism and war is funded by corporations that profit from all of those. The pluralist, just, trans-local economy we know is possible is going to need new media to spread the word. If we're going to shift the culture we need media that's invested in that shift. Join The Laura Flanders Show, the New Economies Coalition and the Media Consortium to hear about the collaboration they're already involved in, and to brainstorm with them about next steps.
