Thank you to our friends at NJ Art News for mentioning The Citizens Campaign as the nonpartisan, no-blame premise as central to constructive and progressive discourse at their public forum entitled “Civics, Humanities and News Media in NJ” on 9/27/12 in Princeton.

This forum explores news in relation to citizenship, democracy, and the human story.

Nine distinguished panelists discussed changes in ‘news’ since 2005; approaches to the “complex, evolving saga” of the Meadowlands (home to the 2014 Super Bowl); and what to include in a late-evening TV or radio newscast highlighting New Jersey’s civic culture.

Panelists included Daniel Day (Princeton U), Doug Doyle (WBGO), Debbie Galant (NJ News Commons), Dr. Sharon Ann Holt (NJ Council for the Humanities), Dr. Stanley Katz (Woodrow Wilson School), Bob Males (NJTV), Chris Satullo (WHYY), Michael Shapiro (, and Nancy Solomon (NJ Public Radio/WNYC).  NJ Arts News Creative Director Susan Haig moderated the forum.

Venue: Arts Council of Princeton, Paul Robeson Center
