Urban Media Literacy’s ultimate goal is to improve our nation overall by helping to improve life in the poorest communities. The best tool for this is education. As Confucius spoke of thousands of years ago “Knowledge is the equalizer of poor men and kings”
Urban Media Literacy’s current mission is to help build stronger communities by assisting in the development in giving learners in “at-risk” areas a firm foundation in Media Literacy and critical thinking skills at earlier stages in life. From the cradle to the grave you have people who are bombarded by media messages. At what ages are they taught how to interpret these messages? Adding more media literacy lessons to Core Curriculum lesson plans can help build a foundation of media literacy in these students. >>>Becoming better educated consumers who understand not only the value of their dollar but the social capital they possess>>>Ignoring or properly assessing messages that have negative content. I.e. Messages that devalue the need for education, promote violence, misogyny and other self defeating behavior.>>>Better educated students will contribute more to helping communities thrive. Assisting students in becoming better equipped to understand the skills and work ethic required for success in maintaining employment or continued education produces members of communities that strengthen rather than drain community resources.
