Sun. 6/28 7p: Join us to bid farewell to our friends the Media Literacy Project. MLP is nationally recognized leader in media literacy education and media justice and has helped transform many New Mexicans into critical media consumers. This month, MLP is closing its doors and we want to honor them for everything they have done for our state these past 22 years. Sunday, we are re-airing our program from November 2013, when we celebrated the MLP’s 20th anniversary. Don’t miss it!
