The Center for Community Media at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY will host the second virtual debate with mayoral candidates aiming to replace Bill de Blasio. This is part of a series of debates taking place between January and June, when primaries will be held.
The series offers a unique opportunity for community media journalists to ask the candidates questions that are important to their respective audiences, largely immigrants and people of color, who have suffered disproportionately during the pandemic. Mayoral candidates will have the opportunity to share their vision for a city that will face serious challenges as it starts to recover from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. All debates are moderated by journalists from the community media.
The forums will be held on Zoom.
About Newsmakers Series
These debates are part of CCM’s signature Newsmakers Series. Newsmakers Q&As are on-the-record conversations of public officials, civic leaders, advocates and academics with journalists from the city’s very diverse community media. The series aims to increase coverage in this media sector of the city government, as well as foster better communication and promote civic engagement.
