While the occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge is still making headlines, the earlier groundbreaking collaborative approach to complex land use issues in Harney County has largely been overlooked. That effort involved local ranchers, environmental groups, and federal agencies, and set a precedent for working through similar land management issues in Oregon and the west. In this first annual public lecture, Daniel Kemmis—nationally distinguished author and Wallace Stegner Prize winner—will discuss this new innovative approach to management of western lands and how it pertains to the Malheur Wildlife Refuge Comprehensive Conservation Plan, the Sage Grouse Conservation Plan, and other western land management conflicts. Daniel Kemmis is an author, a long-time public servant, and currently an Associate of the Charles F. Kettering Foundation. Mr. Kemmis is a former Mayor of Missoula, Montana, and a former Speaker and Minority Leader of the Montana House of Representatives. He is the author of 3 books: Community and The Politics of Place; The Good City and the Good Life; and This Sovereign Land: A New Vision for Governing the West. He is currently working on a fourth book, under the working title of Citizens Uniting.

Mission The CMC exists to act as a showcase for those engaged in community-based grassroots media throughout the Northwest. We aim to create a space where socially conscious media-makers, journalists and artists can network and share their knowledge and skills with each other through informational and hands-on workshops. We also want use the gathering as an opportunity to directly connect media makers who care about making change with campaigns and organizations that are in need of media support. This is done through our strategy based sessions, which took a particular form in the 2014 gathering, and that will evolve as subsequent conferences take place. Goals Our goal is that this convergence becomes an annual event for socially engaged media makers throughout the region to share their talents and continue coordinating efforts on a regional level. Eventually we would like the gathering to rotate between different cities in the region, to give organizers in each locality a chance to get practice doing this sort of work, and to put their own spin on the event. We hope that after each conference a few tangible projects will emerge from the strategy sessions that participants can agree to continue collaboration moving forward from the conference. History This convergence is the evolution of several past projects located in our region that have worked to connect grassroots media makers with ongoing political organizing. In some ways the CMC is an evolution of a project called the Portland Grassroots Media Camp, which for two summers in 2007 and 2008 connected local media makers with community organizers interested in learning media skills through a series of roughly 80 workshops offered by donation or free of charge, with the intention that by connecting organizers with the skills they need it would strengthen the organizations and movements those organizers work with.
