Webinar Description: As advocates for prevention, engaging in critical media literacy will allow us to change narratives and to be more conscious of the messages young people of color are receiving. During the webinar, participants will be given an overview of critical media literacy, including deeper knowledge of how to access, evaluate, and analyze media. Next, participants will engage in an activity, Gender Box 2.0, which explores gender socialization through an intersectional lens. Lastly, participants will analyze different forms of media, including media that centers young people of color, media that shows common stereotypes associated with people of color, and music that is relevant to young people, specifically young people of color.
