Transpartisan Alliance Salon on the Role of Media in Society

What does our society need from the media?

And how do we get the media we need?

We will start off the evening with short presentations on this topic from three great panelists: 

*John Hamer, co-founder of Washington News Council
*Ethan Casey, veteran journalist, editor, and author (http://www.ethancasey.com/)
*Peggy Holman, co-founder, Journalism That Matters and author, Engaging Emergence: Turning Upheaval into Opportunity.

Interactive activities and open discussions will follow!

So come, add your perspective, and meet other people concerned about this issue.

 

Enter the church from 2nd Avenue.

Soup and bread will be provided, and you are welcome, but not expected to bring a snack for yourself or to share.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
