CITIZENS Communications Center for Responsive Media; Progress Report.
Citizens Communication Center for Responsive Media, Washington, DC.
The aims and activities of the CITIZENS Communications Center are summarized in this pamphlet. CITIZENS, a Washington, D.C. based resource center, provides technical assistance, research and educational services to citizens and community groups attempting to remind the broadcast industry of its duty to serve the interest of all segments of the public. The group's activities are centered around three goals: opening the federal regulatory process to adversary procedures and participation by citizens; aiding citizens and groups in participating in the regulatory and decision-making process and obtaining media access; and informing citizens and community groups of their rights to participate in the decision-making process and to have access to the broadcast media, as well as educating and training advocates to assert these rights. An appendix contains the details of several CITIZENS projects that were carried on in pursuit of these goals. (Author/JY)
