Poynter is offering journalists a two day session on covering jails and police reform. Check it out:

This free workshop will help journalists more confidently cover America’s criminal justice system, from learning about COVID-19 inside jails to proposed changes in local policing. Accepted applicants can attend either online or in-person at Poynter’s waterfront campus in sunny St. Petersburg, Florida.

Throughout the entire program, Poynter faculty will lead robust discussions around journalism ethics when it comes to how we cover the accused and convicted. The sessions will be practical, inspiring and non-political. Apply as soon as you know this program is for you. Applicants will be accepted on a rolling basis.

Cost: Free, including hotels. Apply by Friday, Dec. 10, 2021.
