How can digital media help combat gun violence and other social problems plaguing our youth? And how are youth already taking action via media spaces to organize and amplify their voices in their daily lives? A panel explores the possibilities of transforming the lives of young people through new media technologies.

Featuring Cathy Cohen, founder of the Black Youth Project and principal researcher of the Youth & Participatory Politics Survey Project; Biko Baker, Executive Director of the League of Young Voters; Martin Macias, Youth Organizer at Chicago Fair Trade, and more.
