Media Boot Camp night, May 29 2008

Break the Gridlock is sponsoring a semi-formal discussion relating to getting "our" message out to the media, at the New World Resource Center, 1300 N. Western Ave, on Thursday May 29 from 7 to 9 PM.

The discussion is borne of recent media focus on the safety of cycling in Chicago, and will center around how to speak to media to assure our message comes across and avoid being misquoted or misconstrued. We will have Margo O'Hara, communications director of CBF as well as other guests.

In addition to a semi-formal discussion, we will assemble the Derailleur 'zine for distribution at the Critical Mass ride on Friday the 30th.

Refreshments and snacks will be available, but feel free to bring more.
