Project Look Sharp’s Chris Sperry and Student Advocates Promote Media Literacy Legislation
In March 2022, Project Look Sharp’s Staff Director of Curriculum and Staff Development, Chris Sperry, participated in a virtual meeting sponsored by DemocracyReady NY and the New York Library Association alongside high school students from across New York State to promote the importance of media literacy education in school curriculums. Joining the meeting were State Assemblymember Linda Rosenthal and State Senator Sean Ryan, who are co-sponsoring four bills aimed at implementing media literacy education into K-12 schools in New York.
