The 1st United States 
Media Literacy Week 
officially kicks off tomorrow!
November 2nd - 6th, 2015

Thank you to all our partners and supporters around the country. A special thank you to our Media Literacy Week team members who have gone above and beyond in preparation for the launch especially Caitlin Barry, Alicia Haywood, Jaclyn Kahn, Cynthia Lieberman, Emily Long, and 
David Magolis.

Partner Highlight

Media Literacy Now is putting Media Literacy on the public policy agenda. For Media Literacy Week, they are launching an outreach campaign to state legislators across the country, to introduce them to the concept of, and urgent need for, Media Literacy education in our schools. Policy change requires many voices to speak up. MLN invites you to join them in this effort.  With Washington at an impasse, much of the policy action in our country is happening state by state. At the state level, you can truly make a difference with one letter, one phone call, one meeting. We are asking you to send your letter during Media Literacy Week. While the legislative action will vary from state to state, we are pushing legislators to move policy that elevates media literacy education as a priority in our schools. Let's reach lawmakers across the country this week!
