Who Gets to Speak in News Coverage? Solidarity Reporting on Trans Issues

March 31, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm CDT

Who Gets to Speak in News Coverage? Solidarity Reporting on Trans Issues

News coverage of trans issues has grown in recent months, with reporting on legislation, protests, and profiles of trans individuals. Yet much of this coverage still silences, re-marginalizes, and alienates trans people. How can journalism do better?

Join us for an interactive, virtual workshop to unpack what solidarity means when covering trans issues, how cis journalists can share power in solidarity with trans journalists in the service of better representation, and tips for how journalists can report accurately on a topic that is often inundated with official misinformation.

Register on Eventbrite for this free, virtual event.
