The Birth of GOTV. MEDIA:
Professor Yolanda Toure' and Cary Winston Eatmon were working on a number of project with their union in Los Angeles, CA. We brainstormed night and day to find the answer to how we could communicate the message to people in the community. our of mutual interest and together we founded www.gotv.media. We envisioned the potential of bringing this internet TV to community organizations.
www.gotv.media was born out of a desire to enhance positive messages about issues that are of critical importance to union members and our people. Issues such as increasing our membership, getting young people involved in their own democracy, voting for your own interest, and working in public service--are stores we need to upload to our channel.
The Goals of GOTV.MEDIA
To help you create a more democratic and inclusive community by encouraging community organizations to live stream their regular monthly meetings.
To encourage civil rights organizations, community development organizations, community colleges and union locals, to become a media partners with www.gotv.media.
To invite individuals to learn about Internet TV and the power of social media by volunteering to become roving reporters or anchor to help deliver content that they believe would be of interest to www.gotv.media.
To encourage a national dialogue working with National and Regional organizations concerned about civil rights and furthering dialogue around democratic inclusion. We will be broadcasting our first joint national livestream at the A. Philip Randolph’s (APRI’s) 47th Annual National Education Conference.
