History can be a powerful tool for oppression or liberation. In our session, participants will use interactive technology to connect media stories, public policy and people’s movements for social justice. Build digital timelines using the Media History Timeline –our free, open source, web-based tool– and identify unifying intersections in organizing and education. Understand the power of our shared narrative by creating our own history!
