The Decline of Local News and Its Impact on Democracy

Karen Crowley | Published on 2/4/2023

The LWVWA recently completed the study “The Decline of Local News and Its Impact on Democracy,” and now It’s time for League members to come together for consensus discussions, related to this study. The results of the consensus discussions will determine whether the state league proceeds to establish a position about support for local news organizations.

There are two meetings for the Snohomish County League consensus discussions – one in person and one virtual. Find the details on the LWVSC calendar. A member of the Study Committee will join us at each of these meetings and will serve as a valuable resource.

Please note: Participants must review the study in advance to join in these discussion meetings. View this 2-minute video overview to get some terrific tips on how to quickly get the information you need. 

Then, go deeper by watching a 20-minute overview. The study authors have created a document that is readable and compelling, so we encourage you to begin your reading now. If you have not read the study, you are welcome to come and listen, but only members who have read the study will be invited to offer input.
