Please join us on December 17th for “Talk to the Media?, an educational forum for neighborhood groups in the Twin Cities. Meet local journalists from both mainstream and local press as they discuss the
world of media from their perspective.

Learn about basic strategies for getting media coverage for your issues or events. How do you write a good Letter to the Editor? When do you send out a press release? What are some other ways to get media coverage?

Lastly, is your neighborhood ready for the Digital Television (DTV) Transition? Find out more about DTV, learn to hook up an actual converter box, and walk away with multilingual materials to help you prepare your neighborhood.
