Event Details

Social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter changed the landscape of democracy, granting widespread access to public discourse, and empowering citizens to create change in new ways.  But what began as tools to amplify new voices has also given way to the spread of disinformation, deepening polarization, and ultimately, dampening civic engagement.

Driving civic engagement in today’s interconnected media landscape requires re-building public trust.  How can we do that? By challenging establishment culture. In our second collaborative webinar, Media Impact Funders and Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement Funders (PACE) will convene thought leaders from across the Infogagement landscape to engage with participants in delving into several questions:

  • How can journalism evolve, earn public trust, and foster a healthy democracy?
  • What does it look like to create conditions for meaningful public discourse online?
  • What role can philanthropy play in creating these constructive spaces?


  • Kelly Born, Program Officer for the Madison Initiative, William and Flora Hewlett Foundation
  • Jenny Choi, Director, Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives, Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism, CUNY
  • Talia Stroud, Associate Professor, Department of Communications Studies,The University of Texas at Austin
