“The training that Media Literacy Project delivered for our Rape Prevention Education Coordinators was top-notch!!! This training provided invaluable information for our Coordinators on how to teach media literacy to youth, in an effort to decrease the negative effects of violence against women in the media.”
- Lori Gardner, Project Coordinator, Arkansas Commission on Child Abuse, Rape and Domestic Violence
"We were thrilled to have Media Literacy Project present on tobacco prevention to our Girls Understanding Real Life Success (GURLS) group at Atrisco Heritage Academy. The girls loved it and it was a great refresher for the group leaders as well! After the presentation, several girls asked me for extra quit smoking cards so that they could be armed against Big Tobacco. Thank you!"
- Danielle Reed, Director of Women's Health, YWCA Middle Rio Grande
