Join 90 Days, 90 Voices reporters, artists and contributors for a discussion on how to tell stories of immigration together.
This Public Newsroom will come on the heels of the release La Vida de La Villita, an exclusive comic-journalism issue of South Side Weekly that captures immigrant love, life and success in Little Village in this moment of uncertainty and fear. We partnered with students at Yollocalli Arts Reach, Latinx artists, and Little Village organizers and business owners to talk about the challenges facing immigrants today.
We’ll share what we learned from our six-months of reporting on immigration in Little Village and highlight some of the work included in the special issue. We’ll also discuss how others can use inclusive, non-harmful methods to report on immigration in Chicago.
Bring your story ideas and questions about reporting on immigration! And be sure to check out 90 Days, 90 Voices’ guidelines to ethical reporting on refugees, asylum seekers and immigrants: https://90days90voices.com/reporting-on-refugees-asylum-seekers-and-immigrants-df5bc86f7a1e.
