Media Done Responsibly is a media education charity that develops strategic partnerships with schools and media professionals to educate and empower the next generation of media creators and consumers.

MDR trains this incoming generation of media makers, producers, directors, journalists and content creators. When they complete training through MDR, they have clear, strategic tools to use their influence and power to disrupt the status quo of racism, misogyny, rape culture, cyber bullying, and the criminalization of Black and brown youth.  In an environment where Muslims, immigrants, LGBTQ people, and communities of color are being victimized by an upsurge in hate crimes, safe spaces that expound the power and value of diverse human life are necessity.

Annually, over 300 college students in MDR’s partner universities synthesize data from scholarly research to create and lead hands-on, interactive media literacy workshops for 700 youth in over 30 middle and high schools across LA County. Youth have an opportunity to understand how they relate to the media they consume, as well as tell stories from their perspectives, shine light on issues like cyberbullying and lack of quality representation, and advocate for body positivity and inclusion. We have served over 15,000 young people and counting!

We look forward to you being a part of our community!
