Join this conversation on best practices for covering Latino/a/x communities and walk away with a clearer understanding of how to overcome systemic barriers, address gender, politics and immigration, and produce coverage that is responsive to community needs – while also being supportive of the journalists doing the work.

This session is designed for:

  • Journalists whose beats aim to serve Latino/a/x audiences
  • Newsrooms interested in better covering any fast-growing, diverse community
  • Anyone looking for new, experimental and non-traditional work in this space
