Power for Policy: Media, Messaging and the News

April 10, 2019 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm America/New York Timezone

A free and vibrant press is one of the pillars of a functioning democracy — and can inform and impact policies at the national and local levels alike. How can funders better understand the evolving nature of media in a fractious age? How is philanthropy supporting efforts that encourage accurate, informed public discourse? And how can funders ensure that important stories are heard by policymakers, journalists and members of the community?

Join us for our April 10 webinar to hear from journalists and funders, including an opportunity for an interactive Q&A discussion.
