Reporting and Writing News Through a Racial Justice Lens

In "Reporting and Writing News Through a Racial Justice Lens," the Colorlines team will discuss the fundamental idea of reporting through a racial justice lens. We will then share practical tips from our own experiences—how to pitch, the edit process, the power dynamic between editor and writer, and a few things that activists should never do when writing journalistically. Confirmed participants: Akiba Solomon, editorial director; Kenrya Rankin, news editor; Sameer Rao, culture reporter and Yessenia Funes, climate justice reporter

Speakers: Akiba Solomon, Kenrya Rankin, Yessenia Funes, Sameer Rao
