*SNACKS AND BEVERAGES PROVIDED*

Peaceful Streets Project and Solidarity Circuit will be co-hosting a revolutionary workshop this month at MonkeyWrench Books to explore radical ways of using new media. We invite you to join us for an afternoon of daydreaming, deliberating, and inventing.

New media is often dismissed as a tool only wielded by "slacktivists" or as an unnecessary security risk. Nevertheless, local groups are pioneering tactics that unleash this media against various systems of oppression. Peaceful Streets volunteers capture and expose state violence with cell phone cameras, and Solidarity Circuit publishes podcasts via Soundcloud that raise marginalized voices and share local stories of confronting injustice.

The event will begin with an opportunity for people to share their own projects or ones that they follow with a speaking time of 3 minutes. If you would like to sign up, please email info@solidaritycircuit.com.

After presentations, there will be a small group discussion period to dive into the challenges and possibilities of using new media for community organizing and people power followed by a debriefing.

If you have any questions, please email info@solidaritycircuit.com, and we hope to see you there!
