Four of us at the News&Guide worked on the “Survivors Speak” package for several months, relying on six brave women and several expert sources to pull it together.
But we know this is just one aspect of a multifaceted issue. We know there is more to this conversation.
We want to extend an invitation to every member of the community — every age, every gender, every race. Help us keep this conversation going. Help us explore stories that don’t just define the problem but also examine solutions.
Four News&Guide journalists have partnered with Meg Daly, KHOL community affairs director, to host open-studio hours in the KHOL studio in the next two weeks. There are three two-hour slots open. Swing by whenever is convenient. We won’t be live, but we will be recording.
Meg will be at all of them; the rest of us will cycle through different days.
Speak to us on the record or on background. Often those terms are confused, so let us explain: On the record means you are identified, and we will attribute what you say to you, possibly in future stories. On background means we know who you are and we’re collecting information as a jumping-off point for future reporting, but we won’t identify you as the person who gave it to us.
As an example, all of the women in “Survivors Speak” were on the record.
We are all part of the solution. We need your help to explore a path forward.
Come talk to us:
• noon-2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19
• 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25
• noon-2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26
