What is the role of journalism in society? With so much information coming at us all the time, how should we know what to believe? What are the responsibilities of the public to protect free speech and local news and to be informed, for the good of our democracy? Join GPB and Georgia Humanities for this livestream event on Tuesday, October 6 at 7pm where GPB’s own Leah Fleming, Donna Lowry and Virginia Prescott will speak candidly with an expert lineup of guests to answer these questions and more.  No matter where you get your news, the goal of this conversation is to help you recognize how to get the best information available and make informed decisions.

Do you have a question on this topic to share in the conversation? We want to hear from you! Please submit your question here and we will do our best to address it during the livestream program. Would you like to join the Georgia Humanities and GPB mailing lists and hear more about programs and offerings like this? Please do so here!
