“Investing in media literacy is the price we should all be willing to pay for the next generation.” – Adam Chiara
Donate to NAMLE now and help grow the media literacy movement.
We live in a time of unprecedented freedom of information and expression. More voices are making themselves heard than ever before, and this presents both opportunities and challenges. Educators need to equip their students with the skills to access, analyze, evaluate, create, and act using all forms of communication in the 21st century. Media literacy has never been more important.
Helping people understand the media messages they see, share, and create, is the core of the mission The National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE).
Your financial support will help NAMLE serve educators all over the country with resources and professional development and advocate for media literacy education. All contributions will allow us to maintain free membership for individual educators.
NAMLE has accomplished so much this year:
- Hosted the 3rd Annual Media Literacy Week U.S. with 225+ National Partners and events happening all over the country.
- Organized the 11th National NAMLE Conference (Engaging Citizens, Building Community) in Chicago June 26-28, 2017
- Grew NAMLE membership to over 4,000 members
- 50,000+ downloads in the past year for Journal of Media Literacy Education (JMLE)
- Collaborated with Common Sense Kids Action and Media Literacy Now in launching important media literacy and digital citizenship legislative campaign
- Created new parent resource Building Healthy Relationships with Media: A Parent’s Guide to Media Literacy
