Celebrate World Press Freedom Day

Join PEN America, CityBeat, and the Society of Professional Journalists Greater Cincinnati Pro Chapter as we gather together local journalists and community members in Cincinnati, Ohio in recognition of World Press Freedom Day! Councilmember David Mann will kick off the event by reading a proclamation declaring press freedom and local journalism a priority in Cincinnati City Council, and will be followed by a vibrant discussion with local news makers.
Part panel, part small-group discussion, the conversation will bring together those who consume the news and those who report it. A community’s stories are essential to building a resilient and robust free press, and we look to local journalists and news outlets to report the information that most impacts our life. Alongside representatives from the local news media, join us in discussing how narratives in the news shape our understanding of specific issues, what can journalism do to elevate unheard and endangered voices, and how we can create an open dialogue between journalists and citizens. More participants will be announced, but include:
Bonnie Jean Feldkamp, freelance writer and journalist 
Lucy May, Community Reporter at WCPO
Alexis Rogers, Reporter at WLWT-TV 
Tana Weingartner, Reporter and Digital Journalist at WVXU
Chris Wetterich, Reporter and Columnist for the Cincinnati Business Courier
