Project Description

Part of the U.S. Mission in Zambia is to ensure that freedom of the press is upheld and that important issues are reported in the media. At American Spaces, we are particularly concerned with making sure that youth have a voice and a platform in which to raise their concerns, promote awareness of a cause and/or inspire a call to action that will bring about needed social change. We believe that a powerful statement can be made by showing college students how to create a short, but effective PSA video campaign, which can then be shared on a variety of social media platforms.
