The Neighborhood Voices Network is back and In-person!
Public Media Network is launching its first in-person cohort of the Neighborhood Voices Network this September to put the news in your hands. If you are interested in journalism and want to use your voice to provide representation for your community, then the Neighborhood Voices Network may be for you!
Are you tired of the type of news stories you see about your community? Do you feel that important stories and voices are left out of mainstream media? Then take control of the narrative.
Public Media Network is launching its third cohort of the Neighborhood Voices Network this September to put control of the media in your hands. If you are interested in journalism, and want to use your voice to provide representation for your community, then the Neighborhood Voices Network might be for you.
Neighborhood Journalists will be given the training, platform, and tools to start reporting on news in their community. The Neighborhood Journalist Network, will showcase media coverage from a wide array of voices. More people, and more perspectives, means that news coverage will be more well-rounded, and lift up more voices in the community.
The upcoming September cohort will take place in-person at the Frederick Douglass Community Association, board room. An online option is available for those unable to attend in person, however in-person attendance is recommended. Participation in this program is free of charge. Dates and times of our in-person training sessions are listed below:
Sept. 21, 6-7:30 p.m.
Set. 23, 6-7:30 p.m.
Oct. 5, 6-7:30 p.m.
Oct. 7, 6-7:30 p.m.
After completing the training sessions, Neighborhood Journalists are welcomed to join a monthly virtual meeting with past cohort members to discuss current projects, and learn more about the role of journalism in our world.
The Neighborhood Voices Network focuses on a style of journalism called Movement Journalism, which is journalism in service to liberation. Movement journalism emphasizes work that focus on the root-causes of issues, and centers the stories of those most impacted.
