Media Voices for Children
Media Voices for Children was founded in 2008 by a committed group of documentary filmmakers and journalists whose work focused on the human rights of children in the United States and around the world. Having spent 7 years producing Stolen Childhoods(2005), a global examination of child labor and best practice solutions and then releasing Rescuing Emmanuel (2009), about the lives of 100 million street children; we set out to create an online community where our complete video library of nearly 1000 hours of footage could reach a broader audience. We also wanted to consolidate at mediavoices.org the latest news, research, campaign information, media and opinions about the state of poor children and what they need to thrive.
Media Voices for Children publishes material focused on four major areas of interest: The Millennium Development Goals, Education for All, The Convention on the Rights of the Child and The Elimination of Child Labor. Subscription to the site is free and subscribers receive weekly notifications of new content.
Now enterting our 5th year, Media Voices aggregates and publishes online information contributed by over 100 organizations, large and small, including government, civil society and academia. We have over thirty writers, photographers, filmmakers and activists who generate original content for the site. We produce and distribute orginal media and long form interviews with world leaders including, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Wangari Maathai, Kailash Satyarthi and many others. We are members of the Child Labor Coalition in Washington, D.C. and The Global March to End Child Labour.
We welcome new content contributors to the site. Interested parties should contact Len Morris or Petra Lent at: firstname.lastname@example.org and with a brief summary of the proposed submission.
