It is our vision that the progressive community has a way to communicate and promote ideas and activities to a wider audience. We believe in media that lets people speak for themselves and hope that the community will use this resource to share ideas, news, and events.
the binghamton bridge is a community news and events site open to progressive individuals and groups. This site is a project of the Binghamton IMC, which is managed by the Center for Gender, Art, and Culture. The Binghamton Bridge also publishes a weekly e-newsletter with events that community members load into the calendar. Subscribe to the e-newsletter at the top right of this site and join over 700 addresses receiving news of progressive events.
the bridge especially encourages activists to report on their own activities and to provide more in-depth understandings of issues in our community. By offering sharing perspectives, analysis, and information we can begin to appreciate each other's mission and therefore expand our base and become stronger as a community. Here are some guidelines for writing on this site:
• Eyewitness accounts of progressive actions and demonstrations
• Stories on issues ignored by for-profit media
• Stories on people or projects working towards social and economic justice
• Well-researched, accurate, timely articles
• Investigative reports exposing injustice
• Coverage of Binghamton and regional issues
• Stories on events affecting underrepresented groups
• Media analysis
• Information on new forms of organizing and of technology that promote social justice
If there are important articles that you want to share with readers, you may also copy & paste from another source. We recommend posting the first paragraph, plus a link to the original article, to give the author full credit.
We do not tolerate spam, personal attacks, posts that insult or incite violence, or violate other people's rights. For more detailed information about IMC policy contact us.
the bridge welcomes videos of community issues and events posted on this site and on our You Tube Channel.
We have video equipment to loan. Contact binghamtonbridgeATgmail.com.
