Lessons from Ferguson on Engagement

Tell us if your news organization is engaging with your community about the unfolding story in Ferguson, Missouri. You can post your experience in the "add your voice" space or email it to engagementhub@journalismthatmatters.net.

Questions you might address:

  • What have you done or are you considering doing to engage your community regarding Ferguson?
  • What inspired you to do it?
  • What concerns or barriers did you overcome in deciding to do something and how did you overcome them?
  • What have been the outcomes so far?
  • If you considered doing something and decided against it, why was that?

This is a learning moment for all of us in journalism. Thank you for being part of it.
