Global Action Project, Inc.
Global Action Project (GAP) develops the capacities and skills of youth most affected by injustice, to create powerful media, cultural expression, and social change. GAP provides effective media-arts programming to youth from low-income, new immigrant, and TLGBQ (Transgender, Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Queer) communities. Since its founding in 1991, GAP has fostered a pipeline of socially conscious, media-savvy leaders of the future. Working with professionally trained artist-educators, youth collaborate to make powerful narrative, non-fiction, and new media pieces that amplify their diverse stories, and then use that media to educate and advocate on behalf of their respective communities.
GAP’s award-winning media production, analysis and popular education curriculum is widely respected and has been adopted and used by hundreds of organizations and educators. To date, GAP has created over 200 award-winning and critically-acclaimed videos on a range of crucial topics (such as the school-to-prison pipeline, TLGBQ youth homelessness, immigrant rights, and the policing of youth of color), and trained thousands of youth media organizers in a broad cross-section of social justice movements.
