Feedback form is now closed.

The media is under attack, with assaults on journalists and net neutrality, “gaslighting,” alternative facts, fake news, surveillance, monopolization, corruption, etc. Inspired by today’s sessions on democracy and journalism, this highly interactive session provides an intergenerational space for conversation and action planning. How might we take wise collective action to protect and advance our constitutional rights to free speech and free information? With: Denis Moynihan, Democracy Now! co-founder; David Shaw, Santa Cruz Permaculture & UCSC Common Ground Center; Amy Lenzo, weDialogue & The World Café Community Foundation.
