      THE NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON MEDIA REFORM
      November 7-9, University of Wisconsin-Madison

      Dear friends and colleagues,

      This November 7th through 9th in Madison, Wisconsin, Free Press will
      host the National Conference on Media Reform, a watershed forum on
      how to build a better media system in local communities, in
      Washington, and across the nation. The conference is co-sponsored by
      the UW-Madison Havens Center.

      Interested? You can sign up now at: http://www.mediareform.net/conference

      Please forward this email to everyone you know who is concerned about media.

      The 3-day event will feature panelists from a wide range of political
      and activist communities working together to create specific policies
      and strategies towards meaningful media reform. The conference will
      cover a broad range of media issues -- not just media ownership.
      Conference participants will join legislators, activists, policy
      makers, academics, journalists and many others working to build a
      more democratic and public-interest-minded media.

      Over the event's two days, conference participants will enjoy access
      to all panels, plenaries, keynote speeches and workshops,
      performances by internationally famous artists, and an opportunity to
      meet with other activists to build a stronger and more effective
      grassroots network.

      Confirmed speakers already include: US Senator Russ Feingold; US
      Representatives John Conyers, Jr., Jan Schakowsky, Bernie Sanders,
      Sherrod Brown, and Tammy Baldwin; FCC Commissioners Michael Copps and
      Jonathan Adelstein; Entertainers Don Henley, Billy Bragg and DJ
      Spooky; Writers Barbara Ehrenreich, Naomi Klein, Free Press founders
      Robert McChesney and John Nichols; AFL-CIO President John Sweeney;
      and Amy Goodman of Democracy NOW!

      For further information, including schedules, panelists, online
      registration and travel information, please visit:

      I recommend you sign up now, as space is limited. If you register
      before September 7, the conference fee is reduced. Reduced
      registration fees and scholarship applications are also available for
      students and lower-income people.

      Over 2.3 million Americans contacted Congress and the FCC during the
      past few months. Congress is listening. The media is becoming an
      issue in America; now it's time to take the next step. I hope you'll
      be able to make it to the National Conference on Media Reform.

      Sincerely,

      Josh Silver
