Leaders of ONA Local communities from 30 different cities around the country are gathering in New Orleans for a leadership summit — and you’re invited to join ONA New Orleans for happy hour to welcome them to the city.
Come meet the newsroom leaders, reporters, engagement editors, developers, educators, media entrepreneurs, producers and students who are passionate about supporting and building their local journalism communities.
This informal networking meetup is generously sponsored by Facebook. They’re covering appetizers for everyone to share and your first beer or wine.

Local news is the starting place for great journalism — it brings communities together around issues that are closest to home. As part of the Facebook Journalism Project, we’re interested in exploring what we can build together with our partners. fb.me/FJPResources
