Communication Activism and Social Change

September 19, 2019

How do individuals with a variety of interests and wills form common cause to change society? Working at the interface of media and movements, Charlotte Ryan studies how individuals build learning communities that, in turn, form coalitions and movements for systems change.

With renowned Rhode Island organizer Karen Jeffreys, Charlotte published Beyond PrimeTime Activism: Communication Activism and Social Change in March of 2019. Drawing on two decades of collaboration, BPTA provides communication models and worksheets relevant for climate justice organizing.

Charlotte Ryan works in collaboration with the Media Research and Action Project (MRAP).
