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.

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!
