10 Years of MMP

It’s our birthday! For 10 years, Media Mobilizing Project has made media to build a movement for social & economic justice. We have trained organizers to be media makers and media makers to be organizers. Right now we are leading a fight against media-giant Comcast to win affordable internet for low-income families. We are fighting privatization of our public schools. And we are telling untold stories of everyday heroes fighting back against poverty and injustice.

Remembering General Baker

General Gordon Baker passed away on May 18 of this year, but his vision, strength, humility, and legacy will be with us and the world we aim to build for a long time. General Baker, or Gen as he was called, was born in Detroit in 1941 and he was a factory worker. He did back breaking work to build cars in the sprawling auto factories of Detroit, during the boom and bust of that industry in the 1960s and 70s into the 80s. But Gen was more than a factory worker, he was a leader and a visionary.
