San Diego Indymedia presents...

A Vegan BBQ Fundraiser to support Outta Your Backpack Media, a Flagstaff collective that educates and empowers indigenous youth to report on the events affecting their communities:

"Since 2004 Outta Your Backpack Media (OYBMedia) has empowered Indigenous youth through free movie making workshops and resource distribution. OYBMedia is an Indigenous youth response to the need for media justice in our communities. We seek to create community ownership of media through youth empowerment. We challenge corporate dominated media by telling our own stories and by establishing our own networks and opportunities for media distribution. We emphasize resource access for youth with a focus on media literacy. We do this by holding free workshops, providing mentorship projects, coordinating community film screenings and festivals, by distributing fully equipped decentralized media centers in backpacks, and by maintaining our youth media arts center in Flagstaff, AZ."

We will have Veggie Burgers, Drinks and music by Latin Roots Rock/Steady Reggae local band Sol Remedy. All proceeds will go to Outta Your Backpack Media and SD Indymedia. Bring some cash for food and to donate for native youth! No one turned away for lack of funds.
