If you want to make a difference, you need to know what is important.
And that’s why the news media needs to listen to the community as much as possible.
And that’s why it is especially important for the ethnic media, because folks count on you to care for them, to pay special attention to them, to protect them.
Again and again community groups have told us they don’t hear from their media and they don’t know how to connect.
But it is difficult when you don’t have the time or staff to do so.
So here’s a solution.
Join us – the Community Media Workshop – for a free gathering with folks from the Chicago area’s non-profit community on June 4th
These are the people who provide the services that you report and that the people whom your audiences care about. They are the ones who can tell you what’s going on, what’s good and what’s missing in your communities.
If you are not sure about it, talk to me – digame. firstname.lastname@example.org, office 312 369 6400
It is a reception following the workshop’s annual media conference.
