On October 23, 2018, 14 people representing eight organizations gathered to learn from one another about their role in using media to foster on-the-ground movements (DMM, CPM). The goal was to give participants the opportunity to learn what the others are doing. Everyone shared their area of interest, the resources they have to offer as well as the things they are looking for. There was a distinct desire for movements to expand so there is an intentional willingness to learn and collaborate where appropriate.
