#WhyFactsMatter Media Collective mentors digital media students to create socially relevant media shorts. Our upcoming theme is Uniting a Divided Country focusing on ways to reunite and heal the nation. How can we move on and begin to fight the battles that really matter: climate change, racial equality, homelessness, fair pay, and housing?
Toward that end, we are working with students to create a series of radio PSA and short videos to reach across cultural, generational, and spectrum borders with a compelling urgency.
