22x20 Campaign Planning Summit


  • The Brown Institute for Media Innovation Columbia University New York, NY (map)

A nationwide media literacy + civics campaign for the 2020 election

The 22 Million Voters by 2020 (aka 22x20) is a non-partisan campaign to help teenagers become active and
engaged participants in our democracy through the adoption of innovative media literacy and civics education
in classrooms & communities. We envision three enabling pillars of the program:

  1. The creation of scalable tools & pedagogy, aligned to existing standards, that enable educators to teach civics and media literacy in an integrated and modern way.
  2. National and state-level partnerships to embed civics and media literacy in classrooms, libraries and after-school spaces during the 2020 election season.
  3. Educator support networks to enable the teachers to adapt and effectively deliver civics and media literacy in their contexts.

The LAMP is convening approximately 60 stakeholders in September 2017 to develop actionable plans for each of these pillars and to build a platform that participating organizations can collaboratively drive forward between now and 2020. For more, contact 22x20@thelamp.org.
