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

CBS’s Bob SchiefferPolitico‘s Dave Catanese. CNN’s Brianna Keilar and Dan LothianRoll Call‘s Shira ToeplitzTWT‘s Peter Parisi.  These are some of the boldface names you’ll see on stage in two weeks when Washington’s bravest journalists take to the stage to belt out a song.

It’s the one night each year when Democratic and Republican operatives, Hill staffers, and the media who cover their diminishing bipartisanship join forces to sing badly for a good cause. Karaoke in the Capital, sponsored by the American Association of Political Consultants — with some proceeds benefiting Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation — returns to Washington D.C.’s Rock and Roll Hotel on Wednesday, October 19th.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at KaraokeInTheCapital.com.  Doors open at 7 p.m.

For those interested in singing, the slots fill up fast. Last year’s stellar performances included FNC’s Ed Henry (then at CNN) singing Katy Perry’s “Firework” and Slate’s Dave Weigel‘s unforgettable Elvis impersonation. Write budjackson@aol.com to sign up.
