At Massey Media, we have been busy all April working to give voice to those promoting a sustainable, free and empowered world.
Earth Day ~ sustainable fashion
On Earth Day, April 22, we were reminded that sustainability can look fabulous, darling. Our friends at Proxy Apparel in Boston hosted a spring fashion gala that showed we can look great and know our purchasing supports good jobs. Proxy will be coming to DC on May 7 for a trunk show and you are invited. Please see the Facebook invite.
Biomass Accountability Project ~ promoting clean and green energy
“Somebody’s got to stand up for these children.” These were the words of Robert Hughes, who lives 300 yards away from the site of a proposed biomass incineration power plant, which will be across the street from an elementary school with hundreds of children. Biomass incineration emits toxins that are known to cause asthma and heart and lung disease, and they deplete our forests to meet energy demands. Massey Media has been giving voice to local community groups working to oppose biomass incineration in Wisconsin, Florida, Massachusetts, Washington state and more. We’ve been reaching out to the press to let them know that clean energy doesn’t come from a smokestack.
ROOTS Fest ~ a festival of healing, unity and empowerment
We are two months away from ROOTS Fest in Baltimore. The festival is a celebration of how art and culture connects communities and creates resiliency. For five days in June, tens of thousands of people will make history at ROOTS Fest. The first three days will be a national dialogue on arts, culture and creativity. For the free outdoor festival, nationally-renowned artists, performers and the Baltimore community will take over the 52 acres of green space that sits atop the “Highway to Nowhere,” and fill it with new life, color and music. ROOTS Fest will serve as an example for other communities around the country who face the same challenges as West Baltimore.
Edgeworks Dance Theater ~ movement to break stereotypes
We are very pleased to be the public relations sponsors of the Edgeworks Dance Theater’s 10th Anniversary Gala on May 5. Edgeworks Dance Theater is Washington, DC’s premier all male contemporary dance company of predominately African-American men. Edgeworks Dance Theater aims to break down stereotypes through dance, utilizing a spectrum of performances, choreographic and teaching styles, reflecting the diversity of experiences and perspectives of both its members and guest artists. Please support this amazing group and purchase tickets here.
At Massey Media, we partner with social justice and socially responsible organizations to take their messages to the press and to the world. Please call on us to help broadcast your vision of a healthy planet, human rights, creativity and freedom.
