Digital Television Transition: Got the Box?

The Minnesotano Media Empowerment Project (MnMEP) is proud to be conducting educational outreach on DTV with Main Street Project (MSP) and the People Escaping Poverty Project (PEPP) as a part of the Leadership Conference on Civil Right's DTV Outreach & Training Campaign.

We will be serving as one of the Minnesota DTV Technical Assistance Centers alongside MSP and PEPP (Moorhead). We will work together with our partners in providing training, outreach and education to the communities that will be most disproportionately impacted by the transition. The tech center will be open beginning January 14th and will have someone available to answer your questions everyday between the hours of 3pm to 5pm.
