Update #1

Bring It to the Table is going strong

Comment

Dear Supporters,

We are so grateful you took the leap and backed us. In less than two weeks we've passed the $11,000 mark and we have 110 supporters. Please keep spreading the word. We still have a long way to go to reach our $30,000 goal.

Since our launch, we've been invited to bring our Table to two new locations. Join us if you can: 

Netroots Nation, the largest progressive conference of the year (June 7-8 at the Rhode Island Convention Center, Providence).

B & H Exhibit Space, one of the best places in NYC to discuss visual journalism (June 12, 4-6pm at 420 9th Ave., 2nd floor, NYC).

Our trailer was picked up for broadcast on Link TV.

We were featured in Baristanet.

With gratitude,

Julie, Ed and the Talking Eyes Media team
