Preparing for Democracy Day
September 15 is the International Day of Democracy. To commemorate it, we are calling on newsrooms across the United States to turn their coverage toward threats to democracy and solutions to those threats.
Join us on July 20 for an introductory webinar on Democracy Day to learn more about how your newsroom can participate in this nationwide collaborative. It’s critical for Americans to understand that the real threats could end democracy in the U.S. as we know it, and it’s clear journalists need to do more to explain the stakes and highlight who is doing work to protect it.
With support from Hearken, Center for Cooperative Media, Institute for Nonprofit News and News Revenue Hub, we’re designing this initiative to catalyze reporting on the anti-Democratic threats that Americans are facing before the midterm elections.
Click here to register for the July 20 introductory webinar, which will feature guest speakers Michael Bolden, CEO of The American Press Institute (@michaelbolden) and Jay Rosen, media critic and NYU professor (@jayrosen_nyu).
And, if you’re a funder and/or organizational partner — email us — we’d love your help to expand this effort even further!
