March 07, 2017 at WeWork National Building in Chicago.


Trust in news media has erroded in recent years. The alleged culprits are many- the splintering and proliferation of media companies, the silo effect of people only consuming news that reinforces their beliefs, the 24 hour news cycle, and attacks on news credidibility for partisan ends. Behind the bluster, their are numerous creative solutions.

Join BallotReady in a panel discussion on innovative models and technology that work to restore trust in media. Panelists include:

-Kyla Williams, Interim Executive Director of Smart Chicago
-Sarah Brune, Executive Director of the Illinois Campaign for Political Reform
-Summer Fields, Engagement Consultant at Hearken
-Joe Germuska, Chief Nerd at Northwestern University’s Knight Lab

Moderated by Sebastian Ellefson, Director of Content at BallotReady
