Media Literacy Project’s programs work to build youth leadership, elevate media justice issues, and connect media policy to our daily lives to strengthen New Mexico communities. Our current programs center on media projects conducted by youth across the state.
Digital Justice for Us was a youth initiative conducted by Media Literacy Project in 2009 that brought together urban and rural youth from various community organizations to address media justice issues in New Mexico by creating media for community power and policy change.
Girl Tech is a program for young women of color in New Mexico that teaches media production skills to strategically link media justice and reproductive justice issues.
This two-week media literacy class is taught as part of a larger summer school course at Albuquerque Academy. During this course girls learn about media literacy, gender, and storytelling, and work to create their own short video project.
