Be The Media! Workshop with Renée Feltz: Muckraking with a Conscience – Reporting during COVID

May 12, 2020 @ 6:30 pm 8:00 pm EDT

Join us for a Be The Media! Radio Workshop with Senior Producer Renée Feltz, sharing her expertise in the trenches at Democracy Now! during the COVID crisis! Renee will cover: How Democracy Now! has changed in response to COVID; the impact of COVID on other stories; muckraking with a conscience: creative ways to cover stories, including case studies and how to keep segments compelling; muckraking with a conscience:  open discussion.

Renée Feltz is an award-winning investigative journalist who covers immigration and criminal justice. She was a longtime senior producer for Democracy Now! and has also reported for The New York Times, The Guardian, Mother Jones, PBS Need to Know, Rewire, The Nation, The Texas Observer, The Indypendent, and elsewhere.

Be The Media! workshops teach multimedia skills to community members in order to develop urgently needed independent local voices. Our goal is to empower the public through independent media making, supplying them with the tools to tell their own stories through different mediums of media including video, radio and journalism.

We are committed to lowering the barriers to access for events at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. For people who are hard of hearing or deaf, blind or low-vision, or whose physical limitations can interfere with a satisfying experience, let us know two weeks in advance so we can make appropriate arrangements.
