Generation Justice is a multiracial, multicultural organization that trains youth to harness the power of community and raise critical consciousness through leadership development, civic engagement, media production, and narrative shift, based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. GJ’s mission is to inspire youth to become multidimensional leaders who are committed to social transformation. In New Mexico, GJ has been recognized as the premier youth media and leadership group, and locally and nationally, has been the recipient of numerous awards. Generation Justice will virtually present on our mission and activities that include Narrative Shift, Media Justice and Leadership programs. Youth Producers, and fellows from the Leaders for Change Fellowship will present along with GJ Director. Presenters will discuss the importance of Disinformation, Social Determinants and the impact it has on New Mexico youth and community. Session participants will leave with a better understanding of liberation work done from a multiracial/ multicultural framework and how investing in social and pop education leads to strong leadership.
