What's this all for? We need funds to support the Spring session of MDR's Media Education Program!
MDR’s Media Education Program takes a multi-pillar approach focusing on 3 key areas of development:
1. Media Literacy: Cal State University students visit the schools of 11-18 year olds, training them to identify sexist, violent, stereotypical messaging in music videos, song lyrics, television shows, films, magazines and billboards.
2. Media Production: connects participants with partner organizations that train them to create socially responsible films, magazine articles and radio shows. Through partnership with film festivals, participants submit completed music videos and short films to compete for cash prizes.
3. Media Justice Advocacy: teens develop online petitions and letter writing campaigns addressed to local and national media outlets, advertisers and artists. Participants use media tools to create public service announcements and sit in on city council meetings focused on media ownership and regulation.
