We host public events with thought leaders to inform folks of important problems and workshop actionable steps and long-term solutions.
In addition to hosting public events, Media and Democracy Project meet virtually twice-monthly on Mondays.
We aim to better understand and respond to the factors that influence public opinion, voters and democracy. Register for a meeting here.
