    Name: Beyond the Headlines - Communicating in a News Desert
    Date: March 27, 2019
    Time: 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM CDT
    Event Description:
    Join us at a community forum to explore the impact of the changing landscape of news media on Superior and Douglas County. Experts in understanding the nationwide -- and local -- issue of shrinking access to local news on the economy, community engagement and democracy, as well as the future of local news, will give us the big picture. This panel will be followed by a discussion of the results of community focus groups and surveys about how people who live and/or work in Douglas County find out what they need to know to be informed in their civic and community life (Take the survey at the link below!)
