Address1011 South Washington Avenue
DetailsSince Inauguration Day in January 2017, PEN America has recorded more than one hundred specific threats to press freedom—from journalist arrests to violence against members of the press to the president''s attacks on fact-based reporting. Alarm bells are ringing about polarization and erosion of confidence in the media and the truth. We need to do more to protect and reinforce the press as a crucial foundation for our democracy. If press freedom is to survive intact in America, it will be because citizens rise up to demand and defend it. This panel will focus on censorship, news literacy, and fact checking, as well as how community members can speak up for press freedom and engage in productive dialogue. Featuring local artists and journalists Sheila Regan and Sun Yung Shin along with PEN Members Shannon Gibney, Caroline Casey, and Marya Hornbacher, moderated by Joanna R. Demkiewicz (The Riveter). Presented in partnership by PEN America, Milkweed Editions, and The Riveter. Made possible by PEN America’s Press Freedom Incentive Fund, which was designed to support activities that engage and stimulate press freedom advocacy. For more information on the Press Freedom Incentive Fund, visit: https://pen.org/press-freedom-incentive-fund/. RSVP ONLINE.
