Center for Media Justice

In 2002 the Youth Media CounciI was created by the “We Interrupt This Message and Race Forward”.<sup></sup> It was created to help the youth and minorities defend against the media bias that they were facing in California.<sup></sup> Over the years the group expanded into multiple areas that the Youth Media Council felt were being shown unfairly and unequally in the media. With the help of the Movement Strategy Center the Youth Media Council was now able to break down all of these groups and creat the group Media Action Grassroots Network . This later evolved in to the Center for Media Justice in 2008.<sup></sup> It published several research studies that analyzed bias in local news coverage of social issues such as youth, crime, and poverty.
