How do we create community during an age of media disruption?

Our next Hot Topics Discussion tackles a tough issue: as media outlets shrink and change, how does Lincoln develop community? From where do we get our news and information? Is the source trustworthy and accurate? Do we rely too heavily on social media? Are we diminished or strengthened by this changing media landscape?

This is a chance for us to listen and talk about changes in our community conversations. This is not a “bash the media” event but a way for all of us to find answers.
