WHEN: Saturday, March 26 from 10 a.m. to noon.
WHY: UConn Journalism is committed to strengthening the local news landscape in Connecticut and the region. We want to help connect local newsrooms with aspiring, well-trained young journalists.
We know that strong local journalism builds social cohesion, encourages political participation, educates and empowers people. Local journalists inform and guard the public they serve. Local news helps us see, know, care about and understand our communities. It drives conversations and serves as the public record.
