2022 Nieman Symposium: ‘Is Democracy in Danger? Voting Rights and the Roles of the Press’ Feb. 22

This year’s Nieman Symposium will take place via Teams on Tuesday, Feb. 22, at 4 p.m. The 2022 event will aim to examine the challenges that the American press currently faces covering elections and the state of voting rights.  

Reporters, scholars and community organizers will ponder about the strengths and shortcomings of professional journalism as it addresses America’s backsliding democracy. Panelists will also reflect on the professional and ethical practices that could help journalists do a better job at holding institutions, government officials and candidates accountable while empowering people to mobilize and defend their rights. 
This conversation is part of the Marquette Forum, and moderator Dr. Ayleen Cabas-Mijares, will be joined by panelists George Christenson, Suzanne Gamboa, Angela Lang, and Dr. Amber Wichowsky.
