Reporting on immigration with accuracy and empathy has always been difficult, a long-term challenge exacerbated by the mendacity and unpredictability of the Trump-era. Join Define American and MIT’s Center for Civil Media for a discussion on developing inclusive, humane immigration journalism.

This session is designed for:

  • Journalists who want to expand their sources and lift up overlooked voices
  • Newsrooms looking to improve the overall quality of their immigration coverage
  • Anyone who values accurate, relevant journalism about complex, challenging topics
