The Bloomfield Information Project is partnering with Social Impact Studios to host a listening session for Essex County residents to share their experience with local news and information on Thursday, Feb. 11 at 6 p.m on Zoom. You can register for the event here.

This is the first in a series of listening sessions our nonprofit local news organization in Bloomfield is hosting this year. And it is among the many virtual gatherings Social Impact Studios is hosting on behalf of the NJ Civic Information Consortium, a first-in-the-nation project established by the State of New Jersey in 2018 to support more informed communities and address the growing problem of news deserts and misinformation.
