Thank You for 11 Years!

Dear G.A.P. Community,

I want to share some important news. It is after much thoughtful deliberation that I have decided to transition out of my role as Co-Director of Global Action Project (G.A.P.). I have been privileged to dedicate 11 years to the community and mission of G.A.P., and I will leave knowing that G.A.P. -principled, nurturing, resilient- is in a strong position to embrace the challenges and opportunities of a changing world.

Community Media in Action Applications for Youth Organizers and Organizations Due Feb. 6, 2016!

Community Media in Action (CMIA) is a G.A.P. initiative that supports social justice groups working to broaden their reach, deepen their impact and increase youth engagement through the production process. CMIA’s 2016 overall goals are:

1) to increase capacity of youth and community organizations to use media for social justice campaigns
2) to cultivate youth organizers as leaders who can produce high-impact media.

G.A.P. Turns 25!

If twenty-five years seems like a long time ago, it’s because it was!

From 2012-2015, Global Action Project, Data Center and Research Action Design conducted a national research projectMedia in Action: A Field Scan of Media & Youth Organizing in the U.S. The project sought to understand how youth organizers are using media to advance social justice and movement-building work throughout the United States.

Thank You For a Memorable Evening!

On Tuesday night, over 200 of Global Action Project's closest friends, family, community partners, and supporters came together to celebrate the power of young people making high-impact social justice media. Our amazing Co-MC’s for the night, Giselle Bleuz and Rene Gonzalez, took us on a journey filled with song, dance, and interactive multimedia as we premiered four new youth-produced films including collaborations with Streetwise & Safe and DRUM. This years films interrogated urgent issues such as police violence, surveillance of Muslim communities, the criminalization of LGBTQ youth and the importance of creating alternatives to punitive school suspension policies… and did we mention SupaFriends’ brilliant remake of Mean Girls?

Support the next generation of social justice media makers!

We hope YOU will join us in supporting this years youth producers and consider becoming a co-producer of our media by making a donation today to help us reach our $10,000 Spring Appeal fundraising goal!
