: Welcome to the Fringe Media Page :
I first heard about the profound amount of injustice in the world through a video at Catalyst, an annual leadership conference held in Atlanta, Georgia, and here I sit in NYC because of the initial impact of that video. Media is compelling; it’s so accessible and widespread, yet mass media often ignores the stories of those who live on the fringes of society. Here you will find recent articles, videos, and music that report on the stories and victories of the poor from various angles– Enjoy!
