The Alice Paul Center for Research on Gender, Sexuality and Women partnered with The Attic Youth Center this summer to host a training led by the Op-Ed project. The Op-Ed Project aims to increase diversity in discourse by supporting and addressing under-representation in media. Deborah Douglas, Northwestern faculty member and award-winning journalist, spent the day with Penn faculty, students, and community members to workshop ways to increase media presence and contributions to a vast number of community forums. The group's efforts focused on developing materials related to policies that affect LGBTQ youth and their families.
This collaboration was made possible by a Fels Policy Research Initiative Collaborative Working Group Grant.
