With Niala Boodhoo, WBEZ – Chicago Public Media; Alejandro Escalona, Telemundo Chicago; Darryl Holliday, DNAinfo Chicago; Teresa Puente, Columbia College Chicago; and Adrienne Samuels Gibbs, Chicago Sun-Times
Join us for a lively discussion of the state of journalism in Chicago today, focusing on how a lack of diversity in newsrooms affects their ability to tell Chicago’s stories. What are your responsibilities as a journalist? What stories are we missing? What does the future look like and how can we influence it?
Refreshments will be served. Thank you to the Newspaper Guild of the Communications Workers of America and the National Association of Black Journalists for sponsoring this event. Please register here.

How can community issues be fairly represented in the media? What is missing in reporting about Chicago?

The evening kicks off a three-month reporting project partnering journalists with community residents to produce multimedia stories on key community issues in Chicago.
