A LETTER FROM OUR DIRECTOR OF YOUTH PROGRAMS, ANNIE DELGADO
I’m excited to share some fantastic news that you helped us achieve!
As you may recall, last summer, we launched our inaugural Youth Media Academy in Oakland to inspire, train, and give voice to the next generation of content creators.
The young women produced three heartfelt films with poignant messages about body image, elderly loneliness and depression, and one woman’s immigration journey.
Drum roll for the good news…all three films have been accepted into at least one film festival! We’re super excited for the girls and incredibly proud of all the hard work that went into the films — it definitely paid off!
