Choosing Community: Panel and Community discussion hosted by PEN America and the Venezuelan American Caucus
September 24 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm EDT
Our partners at the Venezuelan American Caucus and PEN America will co-present a panel and community discussion on the power of civic engagement when it works in tandem with local journalism and in-language community media, to build community resilience to disinformation.
