Andrei Stoica, Brynn Fitzsimmons, and Nyonu Branch-Watkins of Independent Media Association (IMA, independentmedia.us) describe their efforts to support citizen journalists creating well-researched, contextualized stories that matter deeply to their communities. IMA believes freedom of press means equipping everyday people to tell stories that help us all get free. They work with volunteers and community members to help citizen journalists learn to research, write, film and disseminate stories that are underreported but crucial to local communities. Spencer Graves moderates the discussion.
