Coming this summer…
LAMPers look more closely at outdoor advertising on a Media Scavenger Hunt

Spring break may have just ended, but the good news is that summer is right around the corner–and for us, summer = LAMPcamp. Our news literacy programming will be part of an award-winning Brooklyn-based summer camp, and will also be taking place at a school on the Lower East Side. Next week, we’ll be at the Partnership for After School Education (PASE) Summer Resource Program Fair to talk more about our summer programs. If you’re interested in hosting LAMPcamp, send us an email, and stay tuned to theLAMPpost blog and Twitter to get more details as they become available.

PLUS…our programs at the New York Public Library and the Brooklyn Public Library are still running! Check out our Programs page for the full schedule.

Dept of State sealFor the past few months, LAMP Executive Director D.C.

Participating journalists come from Africa, the Middle East, South America, Eastern Europe, Asia and Central America, and face challenging political climates for transmitting and gathering news. However, many of these journalists are fighting the status quo of an extremely restricted press. Voices that have long been silenced and which can finally now be heard-like those of the women from Afghanistan beginning their own radio station-are significant contributors to growing democracies.Click here to read more.
