I know it's been a while since I've posted anything here on this blog...I've been working so hard with my social justice project over the last couple of years and some things are finally starting to come together.
So, what's my new project? It's called "The UNLEARNing Project℠, a social change initiative with a mission to use social and digital media to UNLEARN racism, sexism and homophobia. Just a little description about this wonderful initiative:
"The UNLEARNing Project℠ is a Washington, D.C.-based project that is a fiscally sponsored initiative under Media Alliance, an Oakland, California-based non-profit. Media Alliance serves as a media resource and advocacy center for media workers, non-profit organizations, and social justice activists. Formed in 1976, Media Alliance’s mission has been excellence, ethics, diversity, and accountability in all aspects of the media in the interests of peace, justice, and social responsibility.
Rooted in social justice education, The UNLEARNing Project℠ enables users to digitally exchange information and materials related to social and cultural issues in an effort to UNLEARN the varying stigmas, prejudices and resulting discriminations existing in the forms of racism, sexism and homophobia. This site is a space that anyone can use as an educational resource, global networking tool, and/or a digital landscape to create meaningful dialog on relevant topics and to highlight one's own personal or professional mission to social transformation and eradicating racism, sexism and homophobia."
I've also been working on producing my first social change film with an amazing Pastor here in Southeast, DC who has a mission to enact social change through his inclusive and affirming church and humanist ideology. The film production process is SO exciting and as a novice to this world, I'm so thankful and blessed to be in a place where I can learn so much!
Make sure you all go to my website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages below. Can't wait to hear your feedback and am so happy to get back to engaging with all of you! Happy Saturday to everyone!
