Book, website to spotlight media/democracy innovation

Book, website to spotlight media/democracy innovation
Spotlighting individuals making innovative use of media to foster participatory democracy and community is the goal of the Media Giraffe Project, hosted by the journalism faculty at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst and funded by private donations.
Beginning in February, the year-long research effort will seek, identify and profile individuals "sticking their necks out" using media to achieve more citizen involvement and accountability in government.
Project researchers will chronicle what's working at the local and national level via a website, "how-to" video, a book and training.
The project is being launched with the collaboration of The Giraffe Hero Project.
For more information on the project, or to nominate media "giraffes" worthy of profiling, please contact:
