Media Justice

media-justice-now

Through our expertise in directly collaborating with immigrant communities all over the state, through our positionality as an immigrant led organization, through our social justice assessment of the status-quo of mainstream media, and our ongoing monitoring of the media messages about immigrant peoples, we have identified four overarching themes that guide the programs, projects and campaigns of our work.

To HUMANIZE the face of immigration by engaging with media content policies and analysis To NORMALIZE the stories and events of Minnesota immigrants in the media To ENHANCE immigrant to immigrant community communicationsTo INCREASE the number of immigrant authored/produced media communications

The four themes above guide us to posit the immigrant rights struggle within the terrain of the field of communications and the media, allowing us to:

-Develop work that goes beyond the traditional methods of disseminating information about any given immigrant group through non-immigrant voices -Shape our work in a manner that will tackle racism -Implement our work by building immigrant leadership on this issue from the bottom up so that, in years to come, we will change the face and power structure of the mainstream media -Give space for immigrant peoples to come together, engage, discuss, imagine and implement creative structures of media and information dissemination -Help eradicate the broader public’s misconceptions about today’s immigrant communities -Educate all Minnesotans about the root-causes of today’s complex problems so we can all be better equipped to take action to create more just communities.

Our four targeted audiences are the general public vis-à-vis the mainstream media (print, radio, tv), elected officials, immigrant youth, and immigrant adults.
