Putting Voters First: Solidarity Reporting for Democracy

October 20 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm CDT

At a time when many politicians are mudslinging and prominent analysts are trying to predict the horse race, what does it mean for journalists to put voters first? How can journalism not only avoid becoming a vehicle for misinformation, but also serve as an affirming space for democratic values? Join us for a workshop on solidarity reporting for democracy, including concrete guidance on priorities and practices for how news organizations can move from declaring themselves “pro-democracy” to putting promises into practice as a public service for voters.
