PRESS POLICY

Community conversations are intended to create a safe space where participants can feel comfortable tackling challenging topics in small groups without fear of being judged or quoted. Press is invited to attend and listen, and may ask people for quotes, photos, or interviews before or after the event, but there is to be no recording (video, audio, or in writing) of the actual community conversation. Press may report on the general themes of the discussion, but specific comments/reflections and attribution is off the record, unless permission is granted by the speaker(s).

Community forums, which are larger panel conversations with local experts and a Q&A session, will be fully open to the press, and recording of all kinds is encouraged.
