Event: “Is that Really Journalism?”

What’s the connection between journalism & advocacy? Why do some news organizations consider advocacy problematic? Who decides what advocacy means?

Distancing journalism from advocacy is common in some journalism settings, but odd, given the long history of journalism that advocates for social change, performs public service, and enacts solidarity with marginalized people.

Join us for a panel discussion featuring folks who work in journalism & have experience with responding to the question “is that really journalism?” including:

  • Madeleine Bair, founder of El Tímpano
  • Gabe Schneider, co-founder of The Objective
  • Aubrey Nagle, Reframe Editor at Resolve Philly
  • Anita Varma, Solidarity Journalism Initiative lead at the Center for Media Engagement

Free, virtual, and open to journalists, journalism students, journalism educators, and advocates of all kinds.
