AMP Blog: Allied Media Projects
Elder Detroit activists in this Black, resilient city taught me that a crisis can be a turning point. This is a turning point – that much is clear. Many of us have never in our lives seen or been a part of such an unrelenting wave of outcry, of action, and of conversation that gets to the heart of racial justice in this country.
Last month, AMP's Executive Director, Jenny Lee, took part in a delegation of media justice activists to the Internet Governance Forum in Istanbul, Turkey. The delegation was organized by one of AMP’s long-standing supporters, the Media Democracy Fund. We are deeply appreciative of MDF for the opportunity to participate in this global conversation about the future of the Internet. Below, Jenny Lee shares her reflections from the Internet Governance Forum.

Turning points are moments when you don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay where you are. Figuring out the next best move is a kind of improvisational dance – requiring much agility and willingness to be vulnerable, while stepping into the unknown.
Here at Allied Media Projects, we’ve arrived at 2014, having navigated many turning points over the past year with grace, thanks to the deep commitment to figuring-out hard questions on the part of our incredible staff.
