Impact Language Glossary & Webinar: How to Use Language Within Media to Shape Perception and Policy
You’re invited to attend an upcoming webinar, “How to Use Language Within Media to Shape Perception and Policy” hosted by VAAC coalition member Michigan Collaborative to End Mass Incarceration (MI-CEMI).
Featured will be a panel of experts providing hands-on learning experience to demonstrate how we can collectively use language to shift the narratives surrounding mass incarceration, as well as dispute myths and misconceptions.
The webinar will engage in an in-depth analysis of the new resource, the Impact Language Glossary, aimed to help amplify the importance of our work through evidence-based common language. The glossary includes definitions of commonly used terms that could be damaging, along with recommendations for alternatives that better fit different scenarios.
The discussion will be hosted from 1-2:30 p.m. EST on March 13. You’ll hear from members of Piper & Gold Public Relations, Michigan Center for Youth Justice, The Sentencing Project and Dream.Org.
