Imagine a sports arena filled to capacity with teens for whom media violence does not translate to partner violence. Imagine people of color free to walk in their neighborhoods without being shot and killed due to fear wrought by constantly perpetuated stereotypes. Imagine peace, compassion and understanding being an integral part of solution building because the humanity of each individual is forefront in everyone’s minds. Our youth deserve the opportunity to see their positive and unlimited potential reflected in mainstream media on a regular basis. Through an organized and consistent community effort, we can bring about social change and media reform.
Media Done Responsibly (MDR, formerly Mother’s Day Radio) works to cultivate a space of respect in media art and entertainment that acknowledges the innate greatness of humanity; a space that honors the value of all people. MDR upholds our worth as human beings by empowering communities to tell truthful, balanced stories of their full humanity that engender respect for them as individuals contributing to society. This is media done responsibly.
I am ready to use media art to tell stories of our peace, of our exquisite joy in supporting one another—male and female, young and old—in maximizing our limitless potential as beautiful human beings. I am ready for us to marvel at our accomplishments, shared progress toward peace, positive and powerful human interactions, and unlimited creativity.
In Service and in peace,
Founder & Director, Media Done Responsibly
