Community Economic Development Association of Michigan
(CEDAM) was awarded a $25,000 grant from the Office of Community Media
for equipment to produce 24 hours of television for Lansing cable access over the next two years.
CEDAM's television show will be called On the Bright Side: Untold Stories of Our Community.
The purpose of the show is to highlight positive stories from the many programs of CEDAM members and other community stakeholders, and transformative work happening in the Capital region and across the state. An example of the type of stories that will be covered are the series of videos that CEDAM just completed for the Allen Neighborhood Center
“The media is flooded with stories about the current dire economic situation, crooked politicians, violence and general negativity about Michigan,” says Tiffany Lemieux-McKissic, manager of membership and communications at CEDAM. “Our programming will improve quality of life and a sense of community for Lansing residents . . . by inspiring people to get involved and actively participate in the many opportunities available within their communities.”
