For decades, protesters, academics and activists have called for action via media to raise awareness about the various
issues that plague the world's population. The Comm GRAD Forum (CGF) seeks submissions regarding any work on any aspect of media, social justice and activism. This conference hopes to highlight how theory meets practice in scholarship that addresses the relationship between communications and social justice.
