The Keynote Speaker is Mark Contreras - CEO of CT Public presenting: "The Role of Public Media in Rebuilding Journalism." CT Public is the Connecticut affiliate of the Public Broadcasting System (PBS) and National Public Radio (NPR). Studies have shown that trusted local journalism is an essential part of our civic infrastructure. We will learn from Mark about CT Public’s efforts to rebuild local journalism across our state, including its renewed focus on serving Fairfield County. See below for Mark's bio.
Our evening is an acknowledgement of the hard work of so many of our volunteers.
