Abstract

Abstract:

This article focuses on cop watching by the Brooklyn-based group El Grito de Sunset Park to provide a case study that illustrates how working-class communities of color are integrating digital technology and media-making practices into their organizing against policing, gentrification, and state disinvestment of services. The article identifies such community media as a nodal point of resistance where local communities organize against global neoliberal forces negatively affecting them by creating alternative modes of representation that counter dominant narratives about them and incorporating media-making practices into their collective organizing for self-determination.
