A Community Conversation: Real News, Real Issues, Fake News, Fraudulent News
Join the Northern Kentucky Tribune and PEN America for a community conversation to identify issues of local importance, gaps in news coverage and service, and the role of citizen journalists within the northern Kentucky media landscape.
We’ll touch on major issues such as the opioid epidemic, economic development, social service needs, schools, state legislative issues, poverty, hunger, and homelessness. The day will also include training on citizen journalism and information on how the news gets made.
Conversation leaders include Judy Clabes, Northern Kentucky Tribune; Dave Schroeder, Kenton County Public Libraries; Brent Cooper, Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce; Mike Philipps, a retired newspaper executive; and a panel of local-issue experts.
All are welcome. This is a free event, but please register. Space is limited. Free lunch will be provided.
