The LAMP's D.C. Vito and Abby Kiesa of Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE) discuss why and how we're committed to unifying media literacy and civic engagement. Young people deserve to be treated as agents of change in our communities — and our democracy needs them. #22x20 https://medium.com/infogagement/https-medium-com-infogagement-civic-imperative-for-media-literacy-youth-action-b9906f66bed1

We ♡ the Queensbridge Houses​ Library! Take a peek at the class website our students (AKA #LAMPers!) created during our #DigitalCareerPath program.

Plans are officially underway for a sizzling summer of media literacy workshops with The LAMP!
