By The People: Dialogue Project Advances Civic Engagement

Shereen Bingham and Ana Cruz led By The People group discussions on the immigration issue in Omaha October 14 on the UNO campus.

Bingham and Jeremy Lipschultz worked with other UNO departments to collaborate with NET and the University of Nebraska Public Policy Center on the project.

A television program will be broadcast statewide in Nebraska, and clips from the UNO event may appear on the national PBS broadcast.

Teresa Lamsam’s Mass Communication Research students worked as research assistants.

Dave Ogden led a focus group on media issues. He, Hugh Reilly and Lipschultz are working on a research project. Bingham also is working on a separate research project related to the event.

Broadcasting major Laura Wapelhorst covered the event for The Omaha News, and other broadcasting students assisted NET in the taping.
