Please circulate to relevant lists.
ACMEBoston is pleased to announce the new Greater Boston Chapter of the Action Coalition for Media Education, online at www.acmeboston.org.
ACMEBoston is a grassroots coalition of media educators, students, independent media makers, media and telecom policy reform advocates, and concerned citizens working to Create, Educate, and Mobilize for media and social change.
ACMEBoston brings ACME's unique approach to media education to Greater Boston involving people of all ages, from all backgrounds in linking media education with civic activism and engagement.
ACMEBoston provides an all-inclusive approach to media literacy education, independent media making, and activism that embraces racial, economic, and gender justice. ACMEBoston also highlights and supports individuals and organizations in the Greater Boston area working to achieve a more just, equitable, and representative media system and society for the 21st century.
ACMEBoston's three step approach:
1. CREATE – Using and sharing media production tools, skills, and knowledge to promote self-expression, artistic creation, and social change.
2. EDUCATE – Building a critical media literacy framework that questions, challenges, and creates alternatives to corporate media images and messages.
3. MOBILIZE – Public mobilization through civic engagement to create a more just, equitable, and representative media system and society.
Because having the ability to:
CREATE = POWER
EDUCATE = POWER
MOBILIZE = POWER
ACMEBoston is working to put power back in the hands of people for real media and social change.
