The next School of Authentic Journalism, April 17 to 27, 2013, in Mexico,
will mark ten years since we held the first one in 2003. More than 300
journalists, independent media makers, community organizers and social
movement leaders have passed through these doors since we began.
This will be the sixth session of the school but it also might (or might
not) be the last one for some time to come, for reasons I'll explain before
this invitation is done. My point is that if you have ever thought about
attending but never got around to actually applying: don't lose this
opportunity. It might (or might not) be the last for a while.
At the 2013 school we will hear from a leader of South Africa's
anti-apartheid boycott and general strike, a union organizer who
strategized Bolivia's "water war" that stopped the privatization of that
resource, an organizer who helped – this year – stop the deportation of
800,000 undocumented immigrants from the United States, a strategist who
launched the global movement to end nuclear power, a writer and journalist
who became a movement leader when her town was threatened by a nuclear
waste dump, a young organizer whose creativity and humor helped topple his
country of Serbia's dictator, and two legendary theorists and organizers
who worked alongside Martin Luther King to end racial segregation.
This ten-day intensive program is for the following kinds of people:
Journalists and communicators who report on and alongside social movements,
community organizing and civil resistance campaigns, and also for those
participants in those movements who write, blog, photograph, create and
manage websites, make video, radio, graphic design or political cartoons
about them. In previous schools we have accepted some applicants with
little experience but whose raw talent and urgent desire to make change in
their communities and in the world impressed us, and a good number of them
have gone on to do great works. Some are even professors of the School of
Authentic Journalism today.
