CMOP is a coalition of organizations dedicated to providing media support and training to member organizations and the people they serve.
Media has the ability to be one of the most democratic and participatory tools available, not to only agents of change, but to everyone.
Media in the hands of the people can create revolutions and our role is to provide those tools to staff and organizational members around the Southeast US.
You Are the Media!

The School to Prison Pipeline is the social phenomenon in which schools are funneling low-income youth of color into the criminal justice system. Families and Friends of Louisiana's Incarcerated Children (FFLIC) is working to reform the Louisiana school system and the juvenile justice system by dismantling the School to Prison Pipeline.
CMOP is currently engaged in providing imagery production and graphic design assistance to fortify and raise visibilty of this long-term campaign statewide.
SOCM members officially kicked off a project to identify and combat stereotypes relating to race and class in the media. The inspiration for this project comes from observations members have made about how local media outlets can influence public perception and lead to serious tension in our communities.
Addressing racial justice in the media sits at the core of CMOP's work. We act and provide venue for the collaborative exchange of strategies around holding media outlets accountable to the populations they serve.
Kentucky is one of the four most difficult states for a former felon to get their voting rights back. Kentuckians For The Commonwealth is working with community members and legislators to change Section 145 of the Kentucky Constitution through House Bill 70. That amendment would ensure all Kentuckians can participate in the democratic process.
As KFTC gears up for the public relations arm of this campaign, CMOP will be there to help provide strategic media training and campaign messaging support to members on-the-ground.
