On April 6, The University of Chicago’s Harris School of Public Policy and The War Horse News will host a day-long convening where members of the public are invited to discuss the human impact of military service with legendary journalists, world-class scholars, and the senior government officials shaping the United States Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs. Featured speakers include Jon Stewart, Secretary of Veterans Affairs Denis McDonough, and Deputy Secretary of Defense Dr. Kathleen Hicks.
Inspired by The War Horse’s award-winning journalism and a Harris Public Policy-authored white paper about how military “news deserts” threaten national security, The War Horse Symposium will explore the intersection of solutions journalism and public policy while promoting discourse and civic engagement about military and veterans issues across the United States.
