Media Literacy Week is Back at CMAC!

Media Literacy Week is back at CMAC! As a community media center, our goal is to help our community become effective media consumers and producers. This series on Media Literacy is the result of a great deal of planning and research and couldn’t come at a better time, with fake news and dis-information so readily available to us.

Join us all week long (October 26-30, 2020) as we celebrate U.S. Media Literacy Week! We have LOTS planned, including two new educational videos to share, a special media literacy live workshop, and a live discussion with local journalists, media educators and experts.


LIVE Panel Discussion on Media Literacy – Friday, October 30 at 12 p.m.

Join us THIS Friday for a live discussion with media literacy experts! We will be joined by Jim Boren from the Fresno State Institute for Media and Public Trust, Dympna Ugwu-Oju from Fresnoland Lab, and Kody Stoebig from The kNOw Fresno with the Youth Leadership Institute.

This conversation will close out Media Literacy Week here at CMAC by highlighting key concepts we discussed throughout our video series, including how to use media literacy to be a more reliable media creator. Tune in to CMAC 1 on Friday, October 30, 2020, at 12 p.m. or watch live on Facebook.
