About the workshop: Looking Beyond the Frame
The ability to analyze and evaluate media messages is an essential first step in becoming media literate. Deconstructing individual media examples, identifying the persuasion techniques used, and applying media literacy concepts are important skills that can lead to a deeper understanding of the media messages that bombard us every day. But this is just the beginning. True media literacy requires “looking beyond the frame” of the media message to examine its context.

Featured Trainer: Andrea Quijada,Executive Director, Media Literacy Project
With more than a decade of experience as a media literacy trainer, and 20 years as a community organizer, Quijada has a deep passion for media justice. She presents nationally and internationally on the impact of media on culture, politics, and technology.She has co-founded various organizations in Albuquerque, including Young Women United, a reproductive justice organization by and for young women of color. She is particularly interested in media as a tool for self-determination and movement building. Andrea has strong cultural and community ties to the Southwest, USA
