Public Narrative was born out of the belief that a free and informed press coupled with an educated public, are the cornerstones of democracy. To do that, Public Narrative teaches people in nonprofits and journalists how to tell better stories. Founded in 1989 as the Community Media Workshop, Susy Schultz is president and lead trainer. She will conduct an interactive discussion about the state of journalism, news literacy in a democracy, social media, storytelling and the importance of communication in a climate where it seems no one is listening.


AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, and research.Since its’ founding in 1881, AAUW members have worked on tackling the issues of the day from social to political issues. The event will cost $12-.
