National News Engagement Day

"Tuesday, Oct. 7, marks the first National News Engagement Day, an event created by the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication in an effort to change the way young people consume news. A recent Pew Research Center study found that almost one-third of young adults do not engage with the news at all. This event is an initial step to creating an informed society."
