What happens to people when they don’t see themselves represented? If we the people, of different positions, genders, races and ethnicities, abilities, socioeconomic and citizenship statuses, don’t see ourselves represented in the news -- which is meant to be a reflection of society -- how can we define not only our sense of place in our community, but our sense of belonging in the world? Join reporter Jenn Smith for a talk on why it’s so important to gather a great multiplicity of voices and how to share your story with larger audiences.
A note from Gwendolyn: Why now? In our media and our public dialogues, it is essential that we hear all voices right now, including and finally centering those voices who have been culturally, historically, or organizationally underrepresented or marginalized.
