NW-ARM strives to educate, empower and elevate the way media affects our lives.
Media of all forms, whether news or entertainment, plays an influential part in shaping our ideas and opinions, and thereby, our community. NW-ARM seeks to educate both youth and adults in our community about the ways in which media influences us, as well as how to be critical consumers.
Throughout the year, NW-ARM hosts events to promote and inform about media literacy in our community. Our interactive presentations educate and equip attendees to correctly critique and consume media for themselves, and spreads awareness of media influences and issues.
Whether you are a community leader, educator, media professional, or private individual looking for resources to educate and inform yourself or others about media literacy, NW-ARM provides articles, curriculum, speakers, and links to other resources.
