Media Matters

This week on Just Solutions. Marginalized communities have been fighting for decades to have their stories told accurately and fairly by the media. While digital and social media platforms can offer opportunities for communities to take control of the narrative, they’re also spaces of misinformation and big tech control. Groups like Media Justice are fighting for communities to have access to media to tell their own stories with the understanding that media narratives can shape public policy. They're campaigning for open and affordable internet, and are raising awareness of the surveillance of Black activists on social media. Our guest today is Eteng Ettah, the Narrative Director at Media Justice.
