Hosts Youth Media Summit in San Jose

 Digital News Literacy Training Event September 25 in San Jose, CA

(McLean, VA, September 6, 2012) –  The Foundation of the Alliance for Community Media (ACM) will hold the second of four National Youth Media Summits on September 25, 2012 in collaboration with CreaTV San Jose. The summit will be held at the Martin Luther King Jr. Library in San Jose, CA from 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. The summit addresses funding, education, and policy and community building issues as they relate to digital and news literacy training for San Jose youth.

In 2011, the FCC emphasized the need for more digital literacy training and increased transparency of government and other civic institutions, with community media centers uniquely positioned to address this challenge.

In addition to the San Jose Summit, additional symposiums are planned for Minneapolis/St. Paul, and at the ACM’s 2012 conference in Chicago. The first summit was held in Philadelphia in May 2012.

This event is free to members of the community, but registration is required and space is limited. To register, please visit http://tinyurl.com/acmsanjose or www.allcommunitymedia.org.
