IEE Featured Station: Native Voice TV
Written by Donna Liu
Of all the TV shows out there that speak to the principles of Inclusion, Equity and Engagement, perhaps none is more poignant than Native Voice TV, a weekly program that has been produced in Northern California since 2004, and is still going strong. Poignant, because some of the least-heard voices in America belong to the people who were here first.

January 2017: Here’s to 2017
Here’s to 2017!
Well, the New Year is here and I hope you are looking forward to 2017 as much as I am! The New Year always gives us that chance to recharge and refocus on the work ahead. No one can argue that there are some interesting times ahead of us, and I believe that community media is going to be a large contributor to cultivating lots of civil engagement this year. As you go forth into your work in 2017, the Inclusion, Equity, Engagement (IEE) Caucus is committed to reminding you of the importance of IEE issues within our daily work and lives. I am excited to announce that IEE will be posting a variety of content each month on the ACM website. This content will be coming from a diversity of ACM members and we hope that each month will encourage and motivate you to incorporate IEE practices into your organization. If you would like to share your best practices or stories related to IEE topics, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to see this grow into an ongoing community discussion.
All the best,
IEE Caucus, Chair
