How can your opinion journalism bridge the gap between potential college-age audience members’ political activism and their lack of knowledge and access to high-quality information? How do you cut through the noise and provide the structure and reliability young people seek with the goal of fostering a vibrant democracy and a more unified civic -- and civil -- life? This generation has had less civic education than previous generations, especially in K-12. It has been eliminated from school curricula across the country. A recent Knight Foundation/Gallup study said that more than 60 percent of college students show strong support for the First Amendment. However, some say that diversity and inclusion are more important to a democracy than free speech.

This session is sponsored by The Lenfest Institute for Journalism and Philadelphia Media Network.
