Program Description

Reporting Back is a community-driven dialogue and workshop series that aims to provide a means for members of the public to influence media conversation about the issues that affect them most.  In partnership with Chicago civic journalism lab City Bureau, we facilitate and support town-hall conversations and hands-on workshops that bring journalists and their publics together throughout the reporting process.
