MEDIA USED FOR JUSTICE, EQUITY & RESPECT (M.U.J.E.R.)Media Used for Justice Equity and Respect (M.U.J.E.R.) is a program that brings a unique opportunity for youth ages 18+ to young adults of up to 35 to lead an independent media production project to share a personal story, learn to develop strategic messaging, work on script writing, editing and more.
If you’re a person of color, an ally of women, non-gender specific LGTBQ+A, emergent or pre-emergent creator, artist, media enthusiast, maker/inventor, entrepreneur, and creative, then you are all encouraged to apply.Selected participants also receive a modest stipend for their commitment, consistent attendance, and participation throughout the program. Participants are chosen through an application process, applications are reviewed by a committee of fellow artists, professionals, educators, counselors, and community leaders.
Within the recent launch of the LoisaidaTV Media Production Studio, we’ll continue to present an hands-on approach to media literacy and production for young adults, women and LGTBQ+A allies, who might be at the early to mid stage in their professional careers.
This program is funded in part by the Department of Youth and Community Development in partnership with the New York City Council, the Office of Councilmember Carlina Rivera, the Black, Latino and Asian Caucus (BLAC), the Office of the New York City Speaker Adrienne Adams and the Howard Gilman Foundation, among other generous supporters.
