What’s Missing from the Story of Violence?

Covering Violence in Chicago

What do we know about violence?

What haven’t we reported on?

Can you name one story or one theme that might help push our community conversation forward?

That would help greatly as we hold a workshop looking at what we’ve done so far, and what more reporting needs to be done here in Chicago.

So, please send me your thoughts or call me. I’ll make sure we present your suggestions at our gathering on October 29.

Journalists, community voices and students will gather for this media forum Tuesday October 29, 2013 from 6-8 pm at Columbia College Chicago, 33 East Congress, Room 101.

Join moderator Natalie Moore, WBEZ Reporter in a conversation about covering violence with Brenda Butler of Columbia Links; Chris Rudd of Mikva Challenge Foundation; Juliana Stratton of Cook County’s Justice Advisory Council; John Owens of the Chicago Tribune and Gaynor Hall Paterson, WGN/CLTV Reporter.

The media forum is co-sponsored by Strengthening Chicago’s Youth at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and the Community Media Workshop. Sponsored by McCormick Foundation’s Why News Matters initiative. http://www.whynewsmatters.org/
