Our Mission

The mission of Life Media Projects, Inc. is to produce, promote and inspire meaningful storytelling for and about marginalized communities. In this process we wish to empower and support media makers to create their own representations as tools for advocacy, education, and social justice.

Our Story

Our purpose is to create and support projects that are educational inspirational, and entertaining but also advocate for social justice issues.

We partner with groups that also make commentary on social, environmental, and cultural issues to stimulate conversation on how best to unite our society. Through creative projects, we aspire to show the lives and experiences of populations that have too long been silenced by gender, race, and class disadvantages.

Our philosophy is that media should be used as a tool of creative, positive expression that uplifts and unites people and society.

Meet the Team

Driven by an innate desire to serve and create safe places for conversations that forward the culture, our team is dedicated to creating content that promotes change.
