Draft proposal to kick start Better Media

The administrators’ draft proposal to kick start Better Media’s campaigning is as follows:

Contract someone for 1 day per week for 12 months, paid the London Living Wage, to work towards achieving the organisation’s objectives, including raising the profile of media campaign work in the UK. As it stands, there is sufficient money in the budget to cover the costs of this option. The decision could then be reviewed by members 2 months prior to the end of this 12 month period.

In the spirit in which Better Media was set up, we welcome your input, as members and contributors. Would you support such a proposal? What should such a worker’s priorities should be? Do you think this is the best way for us to spend monies donated? Do you have any suggested amendments? Once this topic has been discussed, we will host a vote on our decision-making platform Loomio.

I think this is a brilliant idea. This is so essential with the one-sided news coming out from the established media during this election campaign. Having someone concentrate on this for one day a week is a good way to use the money that has been raised so far exactly to combat the unfair, biased propaganda that we are all subjected to every day.
