The theme of the media forum was "Citizens and Security Working Together for Peaceful 2017 Elections"

The Liberia Media Development Project in collaboration with Radio Piso held the fifth edition of the Community Media Forum in Robertsport, Grand Cape Mount County on June 9, 2017.

The forum, held under the theme: "Citizens and Security Working Together for Peaceful 2017 Elections," provided a platform for community members, security agencies, and government officials to agree to the do’s and don’ts which will make the electoral process more issue based, professional and peaceful.

In remarks, USAID/Liberia Mission Director, Anthony Chan, said informed and active citizens who are able to mobilize quickly and effectively make for more resilient communities, are better able to hold community and government officials accountable, and can work together productively to address local needs.
