Democracy and the Informed Citizen
What is the role of journalism in society? With so much information coming at us all the time, how should we know what to believe? What are the responsibilities of the public to protect free speech, local news, and to be informed, for the good of our democracy?
Join GPB and Georgia Humanities for a livestream event on Tuesday, October 6, at 7:00p.m., with GPB’s Leah Fleming, Donna Lowry, and Virginia Prescott, in candid conversation with an expert lineup of guests addressing these questions and more. This conversation will help viewers recognize how to get the best information available and make informed decisions, no matter where they get their news.
Do you have a question on this topic to share in the conversation? We want to hear from you! Please click here to submit your question, and we will do our best to address it during the live program. We thank The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for their generous support of this initiative and the Pulitzer Prizes for their partnership.
