What is Media Literacy? Why does it matter?

Community workshops with basic media literacy lessons and lots of discussion. We learn to expand the traditional definition of literacy and activate the critical awareness necessary to navigate our media saturated culture.

for Media Literacy

Originally established as a luncheon series, we convene mothers and mother-figures to support them as media literacy educators within their own homes. If moms get it, their families and communities where they reside, in turn, get it too. Moms gather to share knowledge, concerns, and resources, as we build communities that prioritize healthy media habits.

for Media Literacy

Dads for Media Literacy began as a living room lounge chat for like-hearted humans interested in amplifying the value of media literacy education. 

We're building a network of Dads who discuss the media in and around their lives. They share ideas, resources, and tips for modeling healthy media habits for their kids.

Challenges parents are navigating in today's media saturated culture are compounded when the grandparents aren't in sync. iSpeakMedia invites elders of the village invested in raising healthy children-the parents of the parents-to explore how media literacy competencies apply to them too.

CORE Program

In our CORE Program, we begin to address matters of identity development with adolescents.

As we explore their relationships with media, we interrogate media’s influence on their attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors through lessons in media literacy.


The Role Model Project

Students are challenged to rethink who we are encouraged to idolize in the mainstream media. Images of extraordinary women who lead with their intelligence are brought into the spotlight to recast examples of representation.


The Role Model Project broadens the scope of what young women see as options for themselves as they shape ideas about who they want to be in their adult lives.

The Power Factor

The Power Factor engages adolescents in activities designed to trace power—the mainstream decision makers and the altitudes of their influence—throughout the United States.


In this exploration of media and American government, students are encouraged to aim for the active side of power when they measure their potential. 

Power Factor

Too many adults would have young people believe that being "prepared"

for a mass shooting on school grounds (as if there is any such thing) is more of a priority than their ability to critically think. As the grownups continue to disagree on what it means to be well, and model various brands of hate, the kids know better. FUTURES offers students space to shape the culture they are in line to inherit, and have adults follow their lead.
