NAMLE’s staff and board have been deep in reflection and conversation about all that has happened since George Floyd’s murder. This moment has hopefully at least shaken the nation into action against 400 years of injustice imposed on Black people in America. The issue of race, social justice, equity, and inclusion are central to media literacy education and always have been. But to break the deep-seated systemic racism in our nation, we realize that the media literacy education community must redouble our efforts.
We have been listening, learning and working on a new action plan that underscores our commitments to social justice. We are dedicated to action that moves us towards lasting positive change.
You will hear from us soon about our commitments moving forward.
We’ve curated a collection of news and resources focused on race, equity, and social justice designed to support educators, parents, and students. Check it out here.
