Take 2 some events, trainings and conferences

So today, here are some upcoming trainings, conferences and events I thought were interesting.

Upcoming Public Affairs Trainings and Free Workshops - These are put on by KBCS 91.3 radio station out of Bellevue Community College . These are great public affairs and civic related broadcasting opportunities.
We’re growing a volunteer-powered and social justice-focused newsroom, where reporters and producers are community members committed to skill sharing and facilitating media making of, by, and for our communities. KBCS offers free community journalism workshops. To get involved, come to one of our monthly public affairs volunteer orientations. They’re held on the first Wednesday of every month at 7:30 p.m. at the KBCS studios. You’re also invited to come by any Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. to observe and/or assist in the production of Voices of Diversity and One World Report. RSVP to Joaquin Uy at 425-564-6195 or Upcoming Wednesday Night Workshop Schedule: Volunteer Orientation 1st Wednesday (August 6th)
