The Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation invite you to join us in a year-long conversation on the Future of Information in communities.

Reliable sources of community information are critical for an informed and engaged society. The Future of Information series will connect national leaders in data and information science, first amendment policy and law, educational policy and information, and other topics with local residents who are concerned about how changes in information are impacting their communities and democracy.
