Generation Justice’s mission is to inspire youth to become media makers committed to social transformation.

Generation Justice trains teens to approach journalism from a social justice and media justice framework. This is a multi-media project that gives voice to activism– locally, nationally and internationally. The end desire of Generation Justice is that youth members will be more educated about community strengths and problems and that they will have the critical thinking, inter-personal, and journalism tools to effectively work on solutions to injustice.

The youth participants are trained in radio broadcasting, blogging, video blogging, and digital story-telling. The teens go out into the community and participate in organizing/civic engagement activities highlighting grassroots community organizers, youth activists, and peace makers. They are also challenged to expand their understanding of social justice, democracy, inclusion, and equity and to use media as a tool for social change and youth activism.
