ABOUT MEDIA ACTION MARIN (MAM)

  • Media Action Marin (MAM) is a grassroots media advocacy group in Marin County, and a task force of the Social Justice Center of Marin.

    MAM lobbied and successfully convinced the MTA (Marin Telecommunications Agency) to create an independent non-profit Community Media Center (CMCM) and to have Comcast provide $3,000,000 for the project. On June 16th, 2009, the CMCM will take over responsibility for running Marin's Public, Education, and Government (PEG) channels.

    MAM believes that it is essential that public access television in Marin offers high quality news and current events programs, that provide a broad spectrum of views on the important issues of the day.

    MAM continues to sees itself as part of the broader, national, Media Justice & Democracy movement, and will continue to work for media in Marin that informs the public, ensures our democracy, encourages popular participation, and guarantees a diversity of both programming, and news and information sources.
