It’s a mixer and more! Please join us as we mark the release of four recommendations by a Latinx community-led working group to deepen coverage of and improve relationships with local media.

We’ll zero in on the pitfall of framing coverage as “negative” versus “positive,” and what it looks like to fill in the spectrum between these two extremes.

Joining us will be Debora Ortega, director of the Latino Center for Community Engagement and Scholarship at the University of Denver; Jesús Luis Sánchez Meleán, editor at El Comercio de Colorado; and Erika Martinez, director of Communications and Community Engagement at Denver Public Library.

The event will also feature a recorded interview with community advocate Betty Aragon-Mitotes and a special presentation of a snippet of her documentary, “Hispanic Community Voices: The Impact of Covid-19.”

The four recommendations emerged from a working group convened by News Voices: Colorado, a collaboration among the Colorado News Collaborative (COLab), Colorado Media Project and Free Press, a national nonprofit.

Date: Thursday, November 11
Time: Cocktails and Conversation from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.
Location: Denver Press Club, 1330 Glenarm Place, Denver, CO 80204

This event is co-sponsored by the Colorado News Collaborative, the Denver Press Club, 9News, The Denver Post, La Voz and El Comercio de Colorado.
