RPMA Meeting – September 3, 2011 (Los Angeles)

The Raza Press and Media Association is the only known national group of progressive journalists working towards justice, peace, and freedom for all Mexicano-Latinos (Raza). We meet on a regular basis, have an organizational structure, principles of unity, objectives, and we consistently published journal, Guerrillera/os de La Pluma.

In response to the continuing and growing assaults on the right to information and freedom of expression, especially as it relates to Raza and other oppressed nationalities and peoples within the current borders of the United States, the Raza Press and Media Association (formerly known as the Chicano Press Association) is calling on Raza (students, journalists, community activists, and academics) active in the field of media (journalism, radio, TV, popular art, spoken word, computer information, etc.) to attend our next meeting on September 3, 2011 at 11:00am in the Momma’s Hot Tamales meeting room.
