WBGO News is hosting a DIGITAL CONVERSATION ABOUT NEWARK on April 21 (Tuesday) at 3pm and you are invited to join in.  

The event is part of the News Voices-Free Press partnership that began a year ago in the WBGO News Deparment, made possible by a grant from the Dodge Foundation.  

WBGO News Voices Fellow and Reporter Brit Harley is co-hosting the event along with Mike Rispoli of the Free Press.  

Harley says it's important to find out what the community's needs are during this crisis.

"We'll be talking about what information you need to be safe and healthy in your community, what questions you might have that need answered and also what news organizations are providing the information you need.  We also want to use this conversation to get a sense of what's happening in your neighborhood."

Harley says the partnership has already been extremely productive and rewarding.

"The Free Press has been an amazing partner during my fellowship in supporting with engagement strategies but also thinking about different ways that we can include Newarkers specifically in our news and information process at WBGO."

You can get information and register here for the 3pm event on Tuesday, April 21.
