Two Reasons to Give to Annual Appeal 2012

1. Seed the McKenna Scholarship
The LAMP is committed to a diverse world of media producers.

This year, all funds raised during the Annual Appeal will seed theBeverly Stanton McKenna Scholarshipfor people of color pursuing careers in journalism and communications. The threat of fewer minorities working in media is real–even as the FCC reported that African-Americans are losing ground in media ownership1, chairman Julius Genachowski wants to relax laws so that moguls like Rupert Murdoch can control more TV stations, newspapers and radio stations2.

By supporting the McKenna Scholarship, you can support The LAMP’s work plus take a stand against whitewashed journalism. Click here to make your gift right now! And…

2. Give $25 and lunch is on us!

To help us continue our services as New York City’s only nonprofit organization giving free hands-on media literacy workshops to parents, youth and educators, please consider a small tax-deductible donation. Your donation goes to work immediately supporting workshop equipment, supplies, and administrative and facilitator fees.
