"Gandhi Brigade has given me the resources to do what I love in film making while also teaching me how to better send a message to the people of my community. ” – Carlos, November 2018, Gandhi Brigade program alumn
My name is Anna Danielson and I have just joined the Gandhi Brigade Youth Media team. Thank you for supporting Carlos and the hundreds of other local young adults who participate in Gandhi Brigade’s free after-school classes and summer programs. Your dollars each year empower underserved youth in your communities to learn new skills and gain new career opportunities for after high school.
As the new Executive Director of the Gandhi Brigade, I am honored to continue the valuable cause that our late founder Richard Jaeggi inspired you to join, and that my predecessor Evan Glass was able to steward and expand with great success.
This year, our students produced a short film, "We Are Now," currently being shown at film festivals around the country. WATCH on the Gandhi Brigade YouTube Channel here: https://bit.ly/2G2kHJP In 2019 hundreds of students will participate in our Media Festival and our summer programs, preparing them for future job applications, college scholarship applications, and social justice campaigns.
Give these future producers, editors, camerawomen, directors, and journalists more choices for their futures by making an annual gift today, on the Gandhi Brigade website www.gandhibrigade.org or mailing your check to the Gandhi Brigade at PO Box 7381, Silver Spring, MD 20907.
