This is a funder-only webinar.
Just two months ago, many of us were gathered in Miami for the annual Knight Media Forum about how we might work together to better inform communities. So much has changed as our communities struggle through a global pandemic. We are hoping that you and your loved ones are safe and well.
We invite you to join Knight Foundation, Democracy Fund, Media Impact Funders and other national and local funders from 3-4 p.m. ET on Monday, April 27, for a webinar to pick up on many of the conversations that we started in Miami. We want to share examples of how funders, journalists and community leaders around the country are working together to connect communities with accurate, local and life-saving information even as disappearing advertising revenues are leading traditional news organizations to reduce staff size.
We will also discuss a key opportunity, Giving Tuesday, also known as #GivingNewsday, taking place May 5.
