Independent/Alternative Media Activists and Journalists Unite for Summit in Houston, TX
News Release
Thursday, January 03, 2019

WHAT: The United for Common Ground Summit

The Summit is the first attempt at bringing together digital activists, journalists, and influencers from around the United States and abroad for a one day event in the Houston, Texas. The independent, or "alternative", media will partner with veteran activists to brainstorm solutions to combat the 2018 wave of social media censorship. This censorship by online platforms has greatly affected activists and independent journalists efforts to organize and spread awareness.

We seek to unify all truthful, anti-censorship, pro-peace journalists & activists that question the political establishment, both left and right, as well as the corporate media establishment.To be clear, this is not a conference or a festival, but a meeting of the minds to network, strategize and plan how to move forward in an era of social media censorship. 

The United for Common Ground Summit was organized by Houston activist and radio show host Derrick Broze and Jason Bassler, co-founder of The Free Thought Project.

“There has never been a better time for those of us in the alternative media community to put our heads together," Bassler says. "Censorship is only getting worse but with the right coordination and strategy we can strike back and ensure a sustainable future free from establishment control.”

WHEN: January 12, 2019, 9 am to 4 pm at Talento Bilingüe de Houston (333 South Jensen Dr. Houston, Texas 77003)
