HERU: Guiding Principles
As HERU, our unique media literacy lens is informed by 7-guiding principles. These principles serve to establish the foundation, upon which we grown and build community. We use these principles as tools, to craft positive self-images using media, and construct healthy community dialogues around media analysis. Our point is to start the conversations …then engage communities to keep them going.
