A workshop on police and community relations for journalists
The state of police community relations is a critical issue today. This two-day workshop will arm journalists with facts, analyses and reporting strategies to make their reporting matter. Scholars and experts from across the United States will cover issues ranging from race and community relations and police strategies to control violence, to police accountability and the mental health challenges police officers face, on and off the job.
We will also visit Chicago neighborhoods confronted by the contagion of violence to hear about the challenges and successes faced there.
The costs of your travel and stay in Chicago for the workshop will be covered. The workshop will be held on Friday, April 24th and Saturday, April 25th at Columbia College Chicago. There will be a brief reception on the evening of Thursday, April 23rd.
Applications are due by March 9th. Click here for more information on the institute and on how to apply .
