This is your chance to use your media experience to challenge gender norms, harassment, assault, discrimination, and all forms of gender-based violence that may be present on your campus. On July 20 & 21 in partnership with NYU Steinhardt's Department of Media, Culture, and Communication, Breakthrough, along with expert media professionals, will help you and your fellow students design an iconic disruptive action that all students who engage with media can take to help end gender-based violence. When you return to your campus, you'll continue to work with Breakthrough to implement this action and make change happen on the ground, digitally, and nationally.
You are encouraged, but not required, to apply with a buddy from your campus. This gives you extra support and critical thinking during the Action Lab, as well as when you return to your campus to implement your designed action. Note that all applicants MUST fill out separate applications. Those who do not apply with a buddy will be paired up with another individual during some sections of the Action Lab.
Applications for Breakthrough's Action Lab will be accepted from Wednesday, March 1st at 12:00 PM ET to Friday, March 31st at 5:00 PM ET. Students selected to attend will be notified by Friday, May 5th.
