Ascertainment at KKFI 4/20/17

Community ascertainment at KKFI – all welcome
Just a reminder of what MC Richardson has been working on to make our organizations more inclusive. This would be a good chance to explain and learn why media awareness and reform are important. Attached is a flyer we will pass out as well an updated FCM fact sheet.
I’d encourage anyone that can, to attend.
