Our Mission

Educate, inspire, and equip high school girls to tell their stories through films that ignite positive change in the world.

Our Story.

imMEDIAte Justice was founded in 2008 by Tani Ikeda, Laney Rupp and Sylvia Raskin. Discouraged by pervasive negative and limiting portrayals of women in mainstream media, they dared to ask: what would happen if women told the truth about their lives?

We provide free, hands‐on film production and media literacy training to high‐school girls in Los Angeles.

Through mentorship from film industry professionals, high school girls gain on‐set experience learning to write, direct and film their own stories through a feminist lens.

Since its inception, imMEDIAte Justice has worked with over 1,000 youth and piloted programs across the U.S. and in Uganda, India and China.

This revolution at IMJ will be televised
and we want you behind the camera.
