Five leading journalists and publishers debated news in relation to citizenship and democracy in a public forum in Summit, NJ, entitled "For 'We the People,' What Should News Be?" Panelists included Jim Schachter (WNYC), Kate Tomlinson (New Jersey Monthly), Terry Baker (Al Jazeera America), Mary Alice Williams (NJTV), and Mark Di Ionno (The Star-Ledger). Over 100 people attended the March 2, 2015 gathering in the auditorium of Central Presbyterian Church. The forum was co-presented by two Summit nonprofits: NJArtsNews.org (a civics-based news site) and Interweave (a community-based learning center).
