One of the most important words in Community Media Day is COMMUNITY. Here are a few community-focused projects that integrate this beautiful thing we do called media which will most certainly get your community members excited and want to learn more about Community Media.

As freedom of speech is a right all American’s share, this non-partisan, non-ideological event is intended to be a unifying celebration. Community Media Day will always fall on October 20, which will almost always fall during Free Speech Week. Community Media Day is a Free Speech Week partner and you should be too.
