Our 2019 Partners

Critical in Cali!

We've temporarily relocated to the East Bay and are looking for organizations to partner with in and around the Oakland, CA area. To learn more about how you or your organization can get involved, please contact us!


We serve Chicago youth with the tools to critically engage with media, identity, and society and create their own unique media narratives.


Critical Youth Media was founded in 2018 in Chicago by Crislin Christian during her time as a UC Berkeley Visiting Scholar and a Judith Lee Stronach Baccalaureate Prize Recipient. Critical Youth Media has partnered with the Community Film Workshop of Chicago and the Broadway Youth Center to bring creative programming to Chicago youth. Crislin has also worked in various capacities with other digital media production programs and youth organizations.
