>" *Youth Media and Youth Movements: Organizing, Innovation, Liberation*
>Youth have been deeply important to every modern social movement,
>including civil rights, LGBTQ, feminist, environmentalist and
>environmental justice, labor, antiwar, and immigrant rights movements.
>In each case, theyﻗ°ﻷve used media as tools for liberation. Young people

>pipeline, occupy public spaces, demand an end to racial profiling, hate
>crimes, and stop-and-frisk policies, mobilize for immigrant rights, and
>more. In what ways do youth activists appropriate digital media spaces,
>tools, and practices in order to create, circulate, and amplify social
>movement voices? What types of media innovations are developed in the
>heat of social struggles? How can we learn from and highlight the
