Boston/New England Chapter

Organized in 2004, the PCN Boston / New England Chapter is a coalition of about 30 active participants representing diverse communities and issue areas. In the course of the last few years, organizations involved in the chapter activities include: United for a Fair Economy, smartMeme, Open Media Boston, ACE, Third Sector New England, Press Pass TV, and Community Change. The chapter carries out the PCN national mission on a regional level.

The regional plan for Boston is to increase the participation of organizers who are doing communications work, particular those representing people of color communities. PCN Boston / New England will also expand media training opportunities to these diverse activists and communicators who are often left with very little support or technical assistance for their work.

Don’t miss PCN-Boston/New England’s seventh annual Be the Media! Mini-Conference! The conference helps participants understand the link between strategic communications and organizing strategies as well as learn essential communications tools and techniques. It’s also a great networking opportunity.

The conference is designed to serve change makers at all levels of experience including those who are doing communications work as part of their current positions, such as organizers, executive directors, or policy advocates. You can see the 2011 Be The Media program here.

Check back after October 15 for detailed theme and workshop information about Be The Media! 2012.
