The Role of Local Journalism in a Healthy Democracy: An Advocacy Panel Discussion

When: Tue., May 24, 7-8:30 p.m. 2022

As local news sources decline nationwide, a growing proportion of Americans are getting their news via social media and online platforms. Our panel will discuss the importance of a robust network of local journalism to maintain an informed population that contributes to a healthy democracy. Expert panelists include a Pulitzer Prize-winning local journalist, a professor of journalism that specializes in media bias and disinformation, and a communications specialist representing the Institute for Nonprofit News. Join us as they share their knowledge and expertise about the crucial role of local media. Registration closes at midnight on May 23.
