As a career journalist and EJ advocate, I see community-based media like the Alhambra Source as crucial to democracy and equality.

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Alhambra Source and AAAJ-LA team up to host a media literacy youth workshop in November

Location

San Gabriel Mission Playhouse, Glass Room

320 S. Mission Drive
San Gabriel , CA 91776 United States

On Nov. 18th, 2017, Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAAJ-LA) and Alhambra Source will be teaming up to host a half-day youth workshop “Telling Our Stories.” This event is aimed at nurturing voices that can serve as bridges to diverse perspectives for first-generation immigrants in the SGV and beyond. To begin this mission, the workshop will be concentrating on the topics of bias and misinformation – subjects that have been largely present in ethnic and mainstream journalism.

With social media and mainstream media coming under increasing scrutiny over the challenge of misinformation, we want to bring awareness to the role of ethnic media in disseminating as well as combating misinformation. The workshop will equip bicultural immigrant youths with media literacy and factual writing skills to critically engage with media content and to produce their own stories. Bi-cultural youths are the focus of this workshop because they serve as a link between multiple media sources and immigrant perspectives in their own homes. The workshop will also put a spotlight on especially contentious issues that are prone to biased reporting: race relations, undocumented immigration issues, and affirmative action.

Mentors from USC, LA Times, and KPCC will be coordinating the event, teaching students basic journalism writing skills and storytelling through multimedia. Other activities for the day will include free lunch, a gift card raffle, and discussion groups. In these groups, participants will learn about and discuss cases of biased and unbiased reporting, and brainstorm other angles to existing media coverage they would like to see and create.

The event is exclusively for 9-12 graders and will be hosted by the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse in their Glass Room. This workshop will lead to publication opportunities in venues such as WeChat, the Alhambra Source, AAAJ-LA channels, and other ethnic media outlets.
