The Center for Journalism & Democracy

Democracy Summit: November 15, 2022 - Howard University Campus, Washington D.C.

The launch summit of the Center for Journalism & Democracy was more than a ribbon cutting. The Democracy Summit brought together historians, democracy experts, and leaders in journalism for a collective unpacking of the present and specific threats to American democracy and the history that shaped this moment. Throughout the summit, speakers and attendees took a deep dive on the journalism profession’s central concepts of fact, objectivity, fairness, and balance as they relate to investigating the institutions and individuals central to our system.
