About the Community Media Workshop

Anything I’ve been part of with Community Media Workshop has been relevant and practical and, dare I say, fun.

- Christina Bronsing, New Communities Program Director, Enlace

Since 1989 Community Media Workshop has worked to diversify the voices in news and public debates by providing a unique mix of communications coaching for grassroots, arts and other nonprofit organizations and sourcing grassroots and community news for journalists. Connecting the community with media, the Workshop promotes news that matters.
