Learning How to Work With the Media to Get Our Message Out

 

Shown at right are some of the participants in OVEC's August SpeakOut! training, the first of its kind ever held, as they do a one-on-one interviewing exercise.

We learned about speaking at press conferences and on TV, and effective tactics for getting media coverage of our events.

We had more applicants for the training than we could accept, so another Speak Out! training will be held soon.

E-mail or call vivian@ohvec.org, or (304) 522-0246 for details.

 

In the second picture, from left to right, teen-agers Amy Runyon, Chrystal Gunnoe and Keldee Branham participate in OVECs Youth Media Justice training.

Participants learned about media justice, media literacy and how to produce their own radio stories.

More youth trainings are being planned for the coming months.

Contact the OVEC office and ask for Tricia or Vivian for more information.
