Community Media

Active participation by citizens.  Local community engagement.  Expanding media access to all.  Empowerment through education.  Tackling tough issues in communities.  Freedom of speech.  Storytelling. Citizen journalism.  Understanding media and how it operates.  Where do all of these important undertakings – essential to media literacy -- happen?  In community media centers around the U.S. and the world.  In this issue we provide two case examples of community media centers and their commitment to media literacy education: one in Dublin, Ireland and one in Brookline, Massachusetts.
