Please share this information with everyone!

• Write for your Rights – Own your story, own your life!

• Community Filmmaking 101
In partnership with Justice 4 My Sister, teens will learn about the film industry, meet industry professionals, learn how to use a DSLR camera, and more. Participants in this program might also have an opportunity to participate in a summer program where they will produce a short film about their lives and community. This is a rare opportunity and one that we want to take full advantage of since careers in the film industry are a unique and lucrative career path in our community.
