YM: Youth Media: Mapping A Global Movement

If we understand Youth Media as a movement for global social justice in media, education, and public policy, what are its goals and practices? This panel will feature the voices of prominent Youth Media movement makers, including long term activist-educators, and former and current youth organizers. They will map new understandings of youth media as social transformation, making particular claims for the political participation of youth alongside demands for media justice, and intersecting innovative practices of popular education, community organizing, and grassroots media production.
