Dear friends of PMC,
As humanity continues to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, we at PMC have adapted our practices to ensure the health and safety of our workforce, our partners, and the communities around us. In response to recommendations from several key public health agencies, we chose to suspend international travel and restrict non-essential travel for all PMC staff. All of us at PMC are following recommended practices on working from home, social distancing, mask-wearing, and healthy hygiene habits.
We are excited to say you will continue to see new productions, articles, and international updates from us, even as many of us shift our daily work schedules. PMC remains committed to maintaining a healthy and active organization creating entertainment for good worldwide.
Our shows continue to reach global audiences, many of which are in areas at high risk for the current outbreak, so we have expanded our narratives to include content relevant to the current pandemic. Through short epilogues at the end of episodes, social media campaigns, and more, <a href=”https://www.populationmedia.org/our-approach/theory-of-change/”>our characters are engaging audiences worldwide</a> by role modeling handwashing, protocols to stay healthy, and cultivating community in times of hardship.
Humanity has survived pandemics over the millennia. United, we will get through this pandemic together.
PMC President and Founder
