About the Event
About the Event: Recent studies indicate that a strong community news presence fosters civic engagement, knowledge and actually decreases the spread of disinformation. Yet in the past two decades, thousands of newspapers have closed or significantly cut back on coverage. So, how do we fill the deficit created by the expanding news desert within our own community?
Join The Catonsville Women’s Giving Circle for a conversation about community news. Jacqueline Scott, professor of English and Mass Media will facilitate a discussion on ways that we can create and sustain the pathways of community news in Catonsville and our surrounding area.
7-9 PM, Tuesday, April 26 Catonsville Women’s Clubhouse 10 St Timothy’s Lane
This event is free and open to the public
DONATIONS ACCEPTED: As has been our custom, we want to use this event to support a grantee organization. We are collecting diapers, wipes and onesies for Refugee Information Services and Empowerment (RISE).
