Making Media Connections 2013: Creating Stories From Underreported Communities

Previous Next
Within our shifting media landscape, more and more non-traditional journalists are reporting the news. These projects go deep into the souls of each community and publish what can be unspoken issues to the public eyes.
Issues such as Chicago crime, domestic abuse, health and disability, ward budgeting, immigration and education to name a few. What makes the Local Reporting Initiative different from other news outlet? They focus on how the community is being affected by these issues not just what is on the surface.
Learn how organizations are using their expertise to inform stories from under-reported communities as representatives from The Chicago Community Trust’s Local Reporting Initiative discuss their projects from the last two years.
Recorded live Tuesday, June 4, 2013 at Columbia Collge Chicago's Film Row Cinema.
