"[The Center for Media Justice] thinks the social forum presents a unique opportunity and the right convergence of people to integrate an idea of collaborative, creative storytelling into a movement building strategy for social movements," said Schmieder. "At the same time we think there's going to be the right leaders there for us to define a media justice policy framework that will help us to be able to use that storytelling in a real way."

Schmieder added that the assembly event between communications leaders will take a good look at how to make media policy a "real social justice issue" that includes how to ensure everyone in this country has "access to the Internet, access to the media, and access to many different platforms to really tell a new story about social movements in the U.S."

CMJ holds the honor of being part of the Media Action Grassroots Network (MAG-NET), one of three alliances that came together as a result of the first USSF in Atlanta in 2007.
