Please join the Community Justice and Mediation Center for an enjoyable evening of spirited companionship, good food and thought-provoking ideas.
Harvest Gathering, our signature fund raising event, is taking place on Saturday October 21, 2017 at 5:30 PM, in downtown Bloomington at the Grand Ballroom of the Hilton Garden Inn. We are honored to announce that the speaker for the event is David Shuster, Emmy Award-winning broadcast news journalist with more than 27 years of national and international experience. David, a Bloomington native, has worked on-air for MSNBC, Fox News, Al Jazeera America, and is now anchor and managing editor of the New York bureau of i24 NEWS, an international news and current affairs network.
From war to natural disasters, to politics and corruption, David has reported on the best of humanity and the worst. He knows the challenges of presenting unbiased yet accurate information in an increasingly polarized world, and understands the role that media plays in shaping public perception.
As a colleague put it, “David is one of the more insightful TV journalists in America. He is compelling to watch in action, and through it all, has maintained his Midwestern sensibilities and integrity. It’s a rare combination these days.”
Moderator for the evening is IU Media School's Professor of Practice, Elaine Monaghan.
