The primary goal of this convening is for CMP grantees from across Colorado to lift up what they’re doing to advance equity in local news, to share what they’re learning, to wrestle with big questions they’re encountering, and to draw out new ideas for next steps. Every session is designed to be enlightening, thought-provoking, and inspiring — with a diverse mix of perspectives and voices, including local journalists, national experts, community members and funders.
