    CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — Since 1989, the Community Media Workshop has worked to diversify the voices in news and public debates by providing communications coaching for grassroots, arts and other non-profit organizations, and sourcing grassroots and community news for journalists. Building on a similar effort undertaken for the 1996 Democratic Convention held in Chicago, the Workshop will work with the Chicago Council on Global Affairs to build a virtual resource center - the Gr8 Global City Media Portal - to connect journalists to local Chicago stories and connect Chicagoans to the issues, ideas and people driving May 2012 G8-NATO summit.
