High school students, educators, and free speech advocates from around the city will gather at the New York Film Academy for Youth Voices Uncensored, an afternoon of film screenings and discussions about how youth media can address important social and political issues. "'Youth today are transforming our political landscape, and they are doing so largely through the world of film and new media,' said Brian Pickett, Youth Program Coordinator for the National Coalition Against Censorship and event organizer. 'As technology becomes easier to use and more widely accessible, we are seeing youth video production emerge as a significant way for young people to put a mark on their world.' Young people are finding that posting videos on Youtube, MySpace, and Facebook is an empowering and effective way to advocate for social change, Pickett noted."
