As makers, thinkers, and innovators, at CMA we believe that by learning and playing together, we strengthen ourselves, our community, and content for kids. Conversation, communication, and dialog is key to this, and we encourage our members to speak out against racism and promote understanding.
These resources can be a starting place for our community to educate and prepare themselves for doing the work of building conversation, communication, and dialogue within the children’s media community and with kids directly.
We see this as a living document, so please let us know if you have any feedback or suggestions! Our inbox is always open: firstname.lastname@example.org.
