Resources from NPT’s “Next Door Neighbors” Webinar

The face of the nation is changing dramatically as new immigrants and unique cultures combine to create a more diverse America. Public media can play a vital role in bringing diverse neighbors together and building trust and understanding in local communities.

On March 16 we presented a webinar that explored Nashville Public Television’s (NPT) Next Door Neighbors project—an innovative model for engagement that uses documentary film and sustained community relationships to strengthen Nashville’s civic health.

We were joined by:

 

Kevin Crane, vice president of content and technology at NPT

 

John Creighton, a member of The Harwood Institute for Public Innovation’s national faculty;

 

 

Remziya Suleyman, policy coordinator at the Tennessee Immigrant & Refugee Rights Coalition.
