On May 22nd I had the opportunity to participate in a Multicultural Youth Network Meeting facilitated by the Immigration Museum.
Issues of engaging young people with media and diversity acknowledged social media be coordinated more effectively for disseminating news, that capacity building of young media savvy leaders be seriously addressed and that media outlets themselves embrace diverse work practices to increase credibility.
These conversations reaffirm the need for communities to maintain sovereign control over their identity in a society often complicit in misunderstanding and misrepresenting them.
Power to the change makers.
Power to empowerment.
