Media Democracy Days is an organisation born out of Simon Fraser University’s School of Communications. Our slogan of ‘Know the Media, Be the Media, Change the Media’ reflects our commitment to the ideals of enabling democracy by empowering citizens with the knowledge they need to critique and challenge mainstream media and the tools to participate in media making for positive social change.
