Piloted in 2004 by local media activist groups the Youth Media Council, Media Alliance, Reclaim the Media, and Media Tank– the Media Action Grassroots Network (MAG-Net) was adopted as a project of the Center for Media Justice (formerly the Youth Media Council) in 2008. MAG-Net has since emerged as a powerful movement network, winning local and national fights to reduce predatory prison phone rates, protect the open Internet, increase corporate media accountability, and preserve digital rights.
The Center for Media Justice
The Media Action Grassroots Network (MAG-Net) is coordinated by the Center for Media Justice (CMJ), a national movement-building hub serving the communications needs and media policy interests of grassroots, social justice sectors, through network organizing and field initiatives. Working in concert with the Network’s governing body, CMJ staffs, manages, and funds the Network— and provides network infrastructure and member convening.
