HOW NEWS FOUNDERS ARE USING INDEPENDENT MEDIA TO TELL THE STORIES OF UNDERREPRESENTED COMMUNITIES


In this discussion about the importance of representation in media, we'll hear from Color Farm's Erika Alexander, The 19th's Errin Haines, Flint Beat's Jiquanda Johnson, Scalawag's Cierra Hinton and author Tiffany Cross.

All of these women have prioritized Black, Brown and other underrepresented voices in their work and built a deep trust with their audiences as a result.

Join us on August 11, 2020 at 2PM PDT / 5PM EDT  (60 minutes) to hear from these extraordinary women and to learn how you might start your own independent news publication through the Google News Initiative Startups Lab.

No cost to attend. Registration required. RSVP for this free event here.
