The fourth annual National News Literacy Week (NLNW) is coming up in the US on January 23-27th. NLNW consists of a variety of online and in-person events for educators, students and the public to learn about media literacy.

One event features newsroom leaders discussing past mistakes and what they’ve learned to build greater trust with their audiences, and another spotlights Chicago news outlets and how they’ve built trust in their communities. To find out more about other events and how to register for them, visit its website here.
