What kind of news and civic information do the people of North Carolina need? How can the media better serve your community?
Join Free Press to celebrate the launch of News Voices: North Carolina, a journalism and community-engagement project. To kick off this project, we're hosting an evening networking reception at Beyu Caffe in downtown Durham.
Over the next two years, we'll work across the state to connect newsrooms big and small with the civic life of the communities they serve. We'll also be working to strengthen networking between and among journalists, news outlets, civic-oriented nonprofits and active residents.
Share your ideas. Talk to journalists. Meet activists. Tell us how we can make North Carolina's media better.
What: News Voices: North Carolina Launch Party
When: Mon., April 24, from 6–8 p.m. (Light refreshments will be served.)
Where: Beyu Caffe, 341 West Main Street, Durham
This event is free and open to the public.
Our News Voices staff — Durham-based program director Fiona Morgan and Charlotte-based organizer Alicia Bell — will be on hand to introduce you to the News Voices project. This will also be an opportunity for you to network with journalists, activists and other people in the Triangle who care about civic engagement.
RSVP today to join Free Press in Durham on April 24.
