Our Growing Mission

In recognition of the growing interest in social responsibility of media makers, CMA is looking to collaborate with its members and outside organizations to engage the general public and increase their awareness and interest in children's media. These activities will provide industry professionals, parents, and educators with the tools to make educated choices about the consumption of media created for children.
