Global Action Project works with young people most affected by injustice to build the knowledge, tools, and relationships needed to create media for community power, cultural expression, and political change. Learn more about G.A.P.
For the past 25 years, G.A.P. youth producers have been a powerful force, collectively generating new narratives about issues such as the over-policing of public schools, the struggles for immigrant justice, and the efforts of queer youth of color to fighting back against institutionalized homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia and racism. As another year of remarkable youth-led work draws to a close, we are writing to invite you to be part of our 25th anniversary celebration!
Please save the date and join us, as we raise our glasses to the different generations of leadership that have built G.A.P. up to where it is today, while enjoying some delicious food, drinks and good company.

NEW YORK, NY- On Tuesday June 28th, over 200 youth and allies will come together to celebrate the power of young people making their own high-impact social justice media. LGBTQ and immigrant youth of color from Global Action Project (G.A.P.), a non-profit organization that works with youth most affected by injustice to create powerful grassroots media, will premiere their newest films.
"We are queer Muslim and Latinx youth, Black trans youth, LGBTQ and straight immigrant youth, and we love the community we create together at G.A.P. We believe in safe spaces. We believe in resilience. We have a different story to tell than the Islamophobic and militaristic mainstream media narratives you will hear. We stand together against all forms of oppression, and we will keep working hard to make sure the world listens." - G.A.P. youth leaders

As you may have heard, our much-loved Co-Director, Teresa Basilio, will soon be moving on from GAP to pursue new adventures.
Teresa will be sorely missed. Teresa’s uncompromising devotion to GAP’s mission and youth media leaders, her imprint on GAP’s programs and curricula, and her strong engagement with the larger field and movements for social justice, have been an incalculable gift to GAP and will continue to sustain us moving forward. We are grateful that she has shared almost 12 years of her life, leadership and passion with us, the last three as Co-Director.
