I'M A PARENT

The Representation Project wants all of you concerned parents and caregivers to know that despite the pervasiveness of media, you still hold the number one spot in influencing your children.

To support you as you raise healthy and whole children, we’ve collected some great resources and opportunities for you. Check them out below and make sure to stay in touch!

UPDATE DURING COVID19 DISTANCE LEARNING

Thank you for your commitment to providing ongoing education about harmful gender stereotypes in the media during this period of distance learning. Since students are likely to increase their media consumption while schools are closed, education centered around media literacy and social-emotional learning is critical to the well-being of all of our young people during these uncertain times.

Together with filmmaker and founder of The Representation Project, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, we are pleased to make curricula files for our films Miss Representation and The Mask You Live In available for free (for a limited time only) for students learning from home.

Please complete the form below to request the materials for use in distance learning only (no classroom use permitted).
