Finding Hope in a Lost Cause: A Climate Change Documentary looks at the climate crisis from the perspective of marginalized communities to show how youth are leading activist movements in a time of planetary environmental crisis.

Cops Are(n't) Color Blind: Changing the NYPD From the Inside and Out explores racial profiling inside and through the NYPD. Youth producers draw from their personal experiences and interviews with current officers, community activists, and elected officials to explore solutions to this controversial topic.

EVC’s workshops change the lives of students like Raelene. After being out of school for 2 and a half years she enrolled in our Youth Documentary Workshop. EVC sparked a craving for learning in Raelene that lead her to college, where she is working on her second degree, while mentoring the next generation of students as a teaching assistant! It has been a pleasure to watch her grow this decade and support her along her path.

We’re excited to announce that she will share her story as the keynote speaker at our Winter Cocktail & Youth Documentary Premiere! Here's a sneak peak video above to learn about why she loves EVC, and get your tickets to this inspiring event today.

"On this first week of school, 1 in 10 students in New York City is homeless.

They want you to know their stories. A group of homeless students produced a documentary about challenges they face."

'Let's make the first day of school, truly a day of promise and possibility for all our city's students, especially the homeless. They can't wait, and neither should we.'

Hollywood Diversity Report Finds Progress, But Much Left To Gain

Gains have been made for women and people of color who work in movies and TV, but the numbers remain a long way from proportionately reflecting the U.S. population, according to a new study from UCLA.

The annual UCLA study tallies box office numbers and ratings alongside diversity both on and off screen. Today's "increasingly diverse audiences prefer diverse film and television content," it finds.

Why culturally responsive education matters: Never mind the naysayers

It’s a way of thinking about education where we imagine a system in which every student’s identity and history is reflected in their schools, where students are seen as assets to learning and not deficits in need of an illusory “fix,” and where teachers and students alike view education as a vehicle for improving the world.

Last month, New York City’s Panel for Educational Policy voted to formally adopt what’s known as Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education (CRSE) as policy throughout the nation’s largest public school district. This is a monumental feat that should be celebrated by every student, parent and ...
