19th Annual Allied Media Conference (2017)

Over 2,500 participants convened in Detroit for the 19th annual Allied Media Conference. The theme of AMC2017 was "Get Ready, Stay Ready", a call to to develop and innovate strategies of preparation, sustainability, and survival within the current political climate. AMC2017 was the first year we presented plenaries, which are panel discussions featuring critical conversations with some of our network's most dynamic media-based organizers. The conference’s Opening Ceremony event featured a keynote presentation from Alicia Garza of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and co-founder of #BlackLivesMatter.
