    Interview with Meaghan LaSala on Grassroots Media Conference 

    Meaghan LaSala is an Americorps Vista outreach coordinator with WERU Community Radio. She’s also the host of the monthly WERU show Bangor Area Commons, covering a wide range of arts, cultural, and political issues and events from the Bangor area, with live guests and local call-ins. Media Collective organizer Martin Chartrand and I met Meaghan when we had the opportunity to talk about Bangor Media Collectiveon her show last December.

    These days, she is also working an another project in conjunction with the station– a Grassroots Media Conference at Unity College this September.

    The conference aims to bring together media groups, artists and activists from all over Maine to meet, learn and strategize. In this interview, Meaghan explains what the conference is, how it can help you improve your media effectiveness whether you’re an activist or an artist, and how the conference is part of the larger struggle for media justice.

    How much has changed since MSNA unionized nurses… 

    How much has changed since MSNA unionized nurses in Bangor, Maine voted to strike last winter? The nurses’ employer, EMMC, is still unwilling to compromise and find a solution to nurses’ concerns about safe staffing.Overworked nurses have grown concerned that patient care may be seriously affected by poor nurse-to-patient staffing ratios. Watch the video on the strike, and consider dropping in tomorrow night at the Bangor Public Library for the Public Forum on Staffing and Healthcare Quality at EMMC. This Forum is April 25th at 6 pm in the 3rd floor lecture hall.
