Our first round brought 19 responses. We will leave the survey open until the end of September so take a moment to lend your voice. Here's some interesting info gathered so far.

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?
  • What advice do you have for others?
  • What questions do you have for others?

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

Help us grow a more diverse and engaged audience

Whether you are considering a new venture or whether you’ve been at it for years, we want to accelerate everyone’s effectiveness by doing what Journalism That Matters has always done: connecting people with each other and linking them to what’s happening around the country with journalism innovations that support diverse communities and democracy to thrive.

To help this process, I'm asking you to complete a three-minute, three-question survey by the end of August. Journalism That Matters and it’s partner, the American Society of News Editors, will use it to improve the “Engagement Hub” – a platform for peer-to-peer exchange about engaging community.
