In 2019, the Pulitzer Center organized more than 700 virtual and in-person events for students, educators, and the general public. In March 2020, our programming changed: To keep our partners at K-12 schools, colleges and universities, and public venues safe, we shifted to hosting virtual events for our audiences. 

While our education and outreach teams miss meeting our audiences face-to-face, we’re grateful for the connections that are made possible in online spaces. Through virtual platforms, we’re able to share reporting from our talented grantees with individuals from a variety of communities—and time zones—an outcome that was not fully realized in a pre-COVID world.

In this update, you’ll find links to webinar recordings that can be viewed at any time. The Pulitzer Center is proud to provide free access to conversations on public health, racial justice, climate change, and other important global issues

This blog will be updated with new events as they are recorded. To register for an upcoming webinar, please visit our events page. If you are interested in supporting our mission to advance journalism and education for the public good, please consider donating to our organization.
