What is the Speakers Bureau?
The Speakers Bureau was designed to create and maintain dialogue about media literacy with members of the Spokane Community. Our presentations are designed to help organizations understand how the media affects viewers, listeners and readers. They also offer information on strategies for parents, teachers and caregivers on ways to help children navigate the media explosion.
