ONA SAN FRANCISCO: Telling Jessica’s Story – A Conversation with the SF Chronicle’s Heather Knight and Gabrielle Lurie

 An ONA Local event, hosted by ONA SF

In December, the San Francisco Chronicle explored the story of Laurie Steves, a Seattle woman who gave up everything to find her daughter Jessica lost on the streets of San Francisco.

The Chronicle’s Heather Knight and Gabrielle Lurie shared the life of Steves and her daughter in the context of a homelessness and addiction crisis that has wracked the Tenderloin for years.

Heather Knight and Gabrielle Lurie join ONA Bay Area to talk about their remarkable journalism and the process of putting sensitive coverage together.

What makes for journalism that sticks with you? How important has the city’s handling (or lack thereof) of these social issues been as a backdrop to the story?
