Training helps journalists with jail and police reform coverage

From DodgertonSkillhause on Morguefile

Poynter is offering a free eight-session workshop to help journalists more confidently cover America’s criminal justice system, from learning about COVID-19 inside jails to proposed changes in local policing.

Participants will prepare for significant legislative and local changes in policing, spurred by both politics and protests. Formerly incarcerated people will give participants insight into the effects of journalism on their life after lockup. And Poynter faculty will lead robust discussions around journalism ethics when it comes to how we cover the accused and convicted.

Applications are due Dec. 14. Apply here.
