Please join us to celebrate GroundTruth’s Fifth Anniversary!

About this Event

The GroundTruth Project Founder and Editor-in-Chief Charles M. Sennott together with International House President and GroundTruth Board Member Calvin Sims cordially invite you to join us for our fifth anniversary as we celebrate emerging journalists and filmmakers from around the globe.

On June 28, all-day training workshops will be offered to GroundTruth fellows and local journalism students alike. Lunch will feature keynote presentations on the future of journalism, including lightning talks from emerging journalists.

In the evening, a formal dinner and discussion will feature award-winning journalists' perspectives on a timely question — How do we speak truth to power when the free press is under siege? — which is also the focus of GroundTruth's latest global fellowship, Democracy Undone.

Learn more about the impact of GroundTruth's work — including our newest initiative, Report for America — while connecting with international leaders in journalism, democracy and philanthropy.

Confirmed speakers include:

Bill Whitaker (CBS News, 60 Minutes), Ellen Tordesillas (VERA Files), Raju Narisetti (Columbia University; formerly The Wall Street Journal), Letícia Duarte (Freelance, GroundTruth Democracy Undone Fellow), Christopher Livesay (PBS NewsHour special correspondent, former GroundTruth Fellow), Nicole Tung (Freelance, James W.
