The Media Trust Resource Hub provides tools, training, and support in supporting youth to use a broad spectrum of communications modalities to tell their own stories and those of their communities and impact change.
FrameWorks Institute issue-based toolkits offer practical framing strategies that communicators can put to immediate use.
In partnership with the FrameWorks Institute, Leading for Kids issued three publications aimed at changing the way we talk about children and their needs in a way that resonates more clearly with the public and policymakers:
- a strategic brief on the societal and cultural mindsets around kids, and how those mindsets may be keeping kids off of various policy agendas;
- a report analyzing how advocates and others in the field talk about kids and how we might improve their effectiveness; and
- an analysis exploring how kids are portrayed in the news media.
ASO Communications (Anat Shenker-Osorio) developed reports for early childhood funders in California that examine the use of a variety of techniques from the field of cognitive linguistics (which is dedicated to how people process information and communicate). These reports examine how people formulate judgments and come to conclusions about resources for young children’s development. See “Minding Our Words: Making Our Best Case for Kids in California” (2016) and the related language analysis resource.
