Repairing the neglect: How journalists can begin to cover marginalized communities

It’s no secret that journalists have done a poor job telling the stories of many communities — people of color, people who are poor, people with disabilities or other special needs, the list could go on and on. In some cases, we’ve misrepresented them or stereotyped them. In others, we’ve ignored entire communities altogether. In this interactive session, we’ll look at how journalists can use empathy and focused listening to engage more deeply with diverse communities and begin to repair those relationships. This session will use American Press Institute research as its foundation. Attendees will work in small groups to examine their own identities in order to help them rethink their approach to interviewing sources, doing research in their communities and interacting with the public.
