In less than two weeks, WAM!NYC will be bringing together media makers and media activists interested in intersectionality and gender justice for the eighth annual WAM!NYC conference on June 17, 2017 at Barnard College.

Join WAM!NYC and sponsors Women, Action, and the Media, Barnard Center for Research on Women, AppNexus, NewsGuild of New York, The Indypendent, and The Feminist Press for a full day of panels and conversing with like-minded journalists, activists and creative thinkers working in various crevices of social justice issues.

As the term “fake news” infects the country’s vernacular, our aim is to reassure people that cold, hard facts are as important as ever. Our main questions: What, as strong and independent media makers, can we learn from each other? And how can we collaborate as we move forward?

Keynote speakers will include activist Erika Andiola, professor Salamishah Tillet, and a conversation with journalist Alison Stewart. All tickets include bagel breakfast, lunch, post-conference reception, a ticket for our raffle (with awesome prizes from Verso Books, Democracy Now!, Babeland, and others), and more!

Reserve your spot now!

See you there,

WAM!NYC and the WAM! Team
