Action Coalition for Media Education (ACME)     A non-profit coalition championing critical media literacy.

Two ACME Summit keynote speakers explain about why this coalition is necessary.

"Media literacy (i.e. the creation of informed and savvy viewers) is so dangerous to media corporations that they have moved to hijack the movement as it builds momentum. ACME is the organization that cannot be hijacked and its formation and launch therefore is an important political moment." Sut Jhally '02

"The problem we face is a hyper-commercial, profit-obsessed media system that does a lousy job of producing citizens in a democracy. A solution is real media literacy education that doesn't just make people into more informed consumers of commercial fare, but that makes them understand how and why the system works, so they may be critics, citizens and participants. That is the type of media education ACME is committed to doing." Robert McChesney'02
