Seeking Community Journalists and Decision Makers for POWER DOWN (Developing our Own Welfare Narrative)
We have seen what happens when the mainstream media represents our stories. Negative images of people who access public benefits and who work hard to make ends meet in a failing economy influence policy decisions to be anything but family friendly, can make us hesitant to ask for the help we need, and make it harder to build community through our struggles.
POWER DOWN is a project that puts the tools in our hands to tell our stories of economic survival in the face of injustice. Community Journalists, low-income parents who learn how to use audio recording equipment and go into their own communities to record the stories of their own friends and family, weaving together a narrative that will aid other parents advocating for their families in the welfare system as well as expand the dialogue on poverty.
Do you have audio skills or an interest in learning? Are you frustrated with the stereotypes that people who are poor are forced to confront daily? Do you want to be a part of changing the dialogue about who is poor and why? Or maybe you just want to know more? Come to our second planning meeting and training workshop on Saturday, March 10th from 1-4pm. at the Olympia POWER office, 309 5th Ave. SE. As with all POWER events, childcare is provided by the Olympia Childcare Collective! For any questions, contact Jamie at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-352-9716.
