When the news doesn't tell your story fairly and accurately, who will? You! That's the conclusion made by the bloggers who started Jack&Jill Politics, 8Asians and LatinaLista. These popular blogs focus on political and social issues from a community perspective-- and don't hesitate to venture into fashion and food as well. Find out how and why they got started, how they build community, what legacy they hope to leave and how they keep going in a panel discussion. Related hands-on blogger workshop, details TBA.
Please RSVP by April 26th if you would like to attend.
