Dept. of Great Stuff: Tonight: Participate in our Media Break-a-Thon!

Center for a New American Dream - More of What Matters

Dear John,

Do you and your kids (or students) want to have fun "talking back" to the advertising industry?

Join us tonight for an interactive webinar with Alan Berry of The LAMP, where we'll examine the tools and techniques that advertisers use to target and influence children. You'll learn how to deconstruct and talk back to commercials. You'll also be introduced to MediaBreaker, The LAMP's free, online editing software designed specifically to help you remix of copyrighted media.

After participating in the webinar, you'll be able to start using MediaBreaker to pick apart and edit real commercials. And we would love to share your "broken" ads! The deadline for submission will be October 14. If you have any trouble, Alan Berry will be available for online technical support on October 13 from 7 to 8 p.m. ET.

Can't make tonight's webinar? Be sure to check out the recording (available tomorrow on our website and Facebook page) so you can participate in part two of the "Break-a-thon" series next week!

We hope to see you all there!
