Subject: November Film: Consuming Kids: The Commercialization of Childhood

Please join us Thursday, November 13, 2008 at The Grand Theater in downtown Salem for The Salem Progressive Film Series' November film, Consuming Kids: The Commericalization of Childhood (For more information please view the attached press release).
Drawing on the insights of health care professionals, children's advocates, and industry insiders, the film focuses on the explosive growth of child marketing in the wake of deregulation, showing how youth marketers have used the latest advances in psychology, anthropology, and neuroscience to transform American children into one of the most powerful and profitable consumer demographics in the world.
Consuming Kids pushes back against the wholesale commercialization of childhood, raising urgent questions about the ethics of children's marketing and its impact on the health and well-being of kids.
