Public Journalism Projects
In 2018, I was one of the co-organizers of the Movement Journalism track hosted by the Allied Media Conference. For this track, we put out a call for individuals interested in shifting the landscape of media so that it reflects the values of our communities. We received numerous applications and were able to accept twelve workshop proposals. In addition to this, we provided scholarships primarily to under-represented writers with a focus on those residing in the South. Learn more about Movement Journalism here.
