Paper Tiger Television brings video activism to Detroit

    Since 1981, Paper Tiger Television has been waging nonviolence by trying to create a bottom-up, volunteer-driven alternative to mainstream TV. Based in New York, they’ve often found themselves focusing on New Yorkers’ concerns. But now, for their next project, the collective has set its sights on another city, a place especially shaken by the events of recent years: Detroit.

    In this short video, see a bit about how the folks at Paper Tiger think about their mission, what calls them to Detroit, and how you can help.
