MIC to host next meeting Oct. 7 in Los Angeles

October 7th, 2014 7:00 PM

The Media Image Coalition will host their next meeting Tuesday, Oct. 7 beginning at 7 p.m., at the offices of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, 4988 N. Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 90042 (at the intersection of Figueroa and Avenue 50). 

MIC appreciates the media watch groups/committees formed to keep on eye on the portrayal of minority communities in the media.

Established in 1989 by the Los Angeles County Commission on Human Relations, MIC represents the first multiracial, multi-cultural, inter-religious media advocacy and education organization in the United States. MIC's mission is to promote increased visibility, diversity and balanced imagery of ethnic, cultural, racial and religious groups, women, LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer), seniors, people with disabilities and other protected groups that the MIC determines to be subjects of discrimination in media and the arts.

We also aim at developing cooperative relationships and strategies with policy and decision makers in the entertainment industry to achieve the goals of increased media access and balanced, non-stereotypical imagery. Furthermore, we at MIC strive to raise awareness of the negative repercussions that unbalanced imagery and hiring practices throughout the entertainment industry have on affected communities of Los Angeles County.

For more information, contact MIC Vice President Cesar Arredondo at (323) 399-9904 (mobile) and (323) 545-6245.
