THESE PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY DOING SOMETHING ABOUT LACK OF MEDIA REPRESENTATION!
They’re called Represent & they’re a startup nonprofit actually doing the thing! First, they’re starting an acting, screenwriting, & filmmaking school for diverse folks FREE OF CHARGE!
That’s right! FREAKIN FREE! IN LOS ANGELES! LIKE THIS IS UNHEARD OF FOLKS
And then there’s this
They’re literally gonna teach executives, showrunners, writers & casting folks TO DO BETTER!
But they’re also gonna fund independent stuff!
They’re basically a nonprofit production house created to fund media by & for diverse folks!
But THE BEST PART IS
THEIR MISSION IS INTERSECTIONAL! LIKE, THEY ACTUALLY SAY IT IN THE MISSION! THIS QUEER BLACK LADY IS SOBBING OK! THIS IS A LOT!
