Mississippi Today’s #PublicNewsroom events are regular community gatherings where people come together with reporters to listen, receive feedback, and build relationships. We host these in a variety of spaces in the Delta: from Clarksdale to Cleveland, in churches and community centers.

We believe that by hosting conversations and sharing our reporting through these gatherings, we are building stronger relationships with the communities that we report on.

Upcoming Public Newsroom: TBD

Our workshop series is inspired by and created in collaboration with City Bureau’s #PublicNewsroom. The #publicnewsroom is a series of gatherings and discussions aimed at building trust between journalists and the communities they serve while shaping a more inclusive newsroom. City Bureau is a Chicago-based journalism lab. You can learn more about their Public Newsroom workshop series at www.citybureau.org/publicnewsroom.
