WIMN’s Voices: A Group Blog on Women, Media, AND…

Celebrating five years of media justice

Hi, I’m Deanne Cuellar, project director of Texas Media Empowerment Project, co-founder of Local 782 in San Antonio, TX, leadership team member of MAG-Net (the Media Action Grassroots Network), and independent blogger at Krak My Apple. I’ve been signed on as a house blogger here at WIMN’s Voices for many months, now, and have been excited about joining this community of women writers to post in WIMN’s music, media and technology beats. It’s taken me a while to write this first post because, frankly, I’ve been too busy fighting for media justice on a whole lot of fronts to find the time to blog.

But I’m really inspired to jump into this blog tonight, on the fifth anniversary of the Center for Media Justice.

What better way to celebrate media justice than to come out to support the CMJ, which has confronted the racist, sexist, classist infrastructure of corporate media for the last five years? Until there is a media infrastructure that is accountable to all communities, media will continue to perpetuate injustice in this country.

We must recognize the affinity of music, media and technology, and how they affect us all. So, it is only appropriate that a musician such as Invincible — a woman whose activism is local to global — headlines CMJ’s event tonight in Oakland.

So tonight I’ll be partying with some of my best friends and allies in the media justice movement — CMJ’s Malkia Cyril and Samhita Mukhopadhyay (who both post on WIMN’s Voices periodically), Jennifer Pozner of Women In Media & News, poet and Roopa Singh, and other great CMJ staffers like Jen Soriano, Karlos Gauna Schmieder, and my new best homegirl, Oshun Turman.

    If you are a huge pizza fan there is a quite simple method to lower the quantity of calories that you eat from consuming it. You could blot each piece of pizza that you intend on consuming with a paper napkin and also that will soak up a great deal of excess oil.
