Busy schedule lined up for ASNE community engagement project

The ASNE project has an exciting schedule for the remainder of 2016. The project is working with local media, civic organizations and higher education partners to host ongoing citizen dialogues around the country. Here is a list of upcoming communities and the media partners working with us as news literacy ambassadors: 

ASNE hosts three roundtables with King County Library System

In May, ASNE's National Community and News Literacy Roundtables Project hosted a series of facilitated community discussions in partnership with the King County (Washington) Library System. As part of KCLS' "Everyone's Talking About It" adult learning programming, the roundtables covered homelessness, food insecurity and mental health at three KCLS libraries.

ASNE's community news literacy projects end 2015 with huge success

 
In 2015, ASNE launched the National Community and News Literacy Roundtables Project and the Tennessee Tough Issues Forums. The national and Tennessee projects had big impacts on a number of communities. These recaps of a number of the programs highlight the importance of encouraging and supporting community engagement. ASNE is proud of this success and looks forward to continuing to work with communities across the country and our dedicated partners who support our efforts.
