Free and independent media will be the voice to solve the worlds problems for the next 50 years. With economic, social, and environmental strain on our world now more than ever is the need for free and independent media. At this time in history its time for us to discover and debate on what it needs to be progressive. Are we comfortable with what is happening to our young people, our communities and opportunities to explore creativity? Are we as progressives going to ask the hard questions and come up with the hard answers that leadership demands? I believe I can offer leadership and innovate solutions to these questions.
