Session Date:

Governors Square 17
Activity: 
Policy and Politics

Media exposure is guaranteed from the earliest stages of life. But a true understanding of media comes much later. And activism for change in the media comes well after that, if at all. But what if public schools offered media literacy education? And what if colleges had media activism majors that graduated students committed to looking at media more critically? Join this interactive workshop to learn how others have brought these ideas to fruition. Weaving media literacy and activism into our education system is one of the most effective ways to combat the power of the corporate media.
