Civic Media Center turns 30 in October

by Joe Courter

A quick update on the Civic Media Center as it approaches its 30th (!) anniversary on Oct. 18 …

While not doing as many public events post-COVID, it is host to a lot of organizing and many folks are plugging in to advance social justice work. 

Dozens of people help with Free Grocery Store on Tuesdays. Evening events include Books 2 Prisoners, anti-incarceration organizing, the weekly poetry jam, and occasional live music. 

The Collections Committee keeps the library organized, adding, sorting, and developing ways to present the collection better. Book clubs and meetings take place regularly. Stetson Kennedy would be proud.

Got CMC memories? Stories, experiences; how did CMC touch your life? 

Send quick (or longer) notes to:, and the Iguana will use them in its CMC feature in the October edition.
