Event description

Description

How can your nonprofit or community-focused organization promote your work, draw media attention and highlight your mission?

The Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) presents Media Access, a FREE half-day workshop for nonprofit and community organizations to learn about the most effective ways to build partnerships with local media organizations and get coverage.

Media Access is free and open to nonprofits and community-based organizations. The sessions cover media literacy, media access and op-ed writing featuring a moderator and a panel of local journalists.


Moderator

Toan Lam is the host of the TruthDare podcast, a motivational speaker, multimedia consultant, university professor and founder of GoInspireGo.com, a nonprofit multimedia platform that uses storytelling and social networking for social change. After eight years as a television news reporter, Toan left his job to start GoInspireGo, a nonprofit organization that scours the globe for "street corner"-style heroes to produce authentic and touching stories, all while leveraging social media to raise visibility and support for those featured. His work has been featured on ABC's Good Morning America, CNN, Disney and Hallmark channels. Toan's blogs have also been shared on The Huffington Post and Deepak and Mallika Chopra's Intent.com.
