On Wednesday, Aug. 16, 2023, Public Narrative, hosted “Terkel Circle Soirée” a first of its kind for the organization, gathering an intimate group of winners from the 28 seasons of the Community Media Awards to celebrate and recognize this great community of talented journalists with dear Public Narrative friends and supporters.

Attendees of the invite-only event learned more about Public Narrative’s roadmap and how they can take part in its legacy as we gear up for our 35th anniversary in 2024. They also met and listened in on a fireside chat featuring The TRiiBE’s Tiffany Walden and Injustice Watch’s Carlos Ballesteros, two of the four 2023 Studs Terkel Award winners.
