The Headline Club is co-sponsoring a meeting on June 28th to bring journalists together with those who deal with youth violence. As this story seems to tragically grow larger, we need to find new sources to explore and explain and to help us describe the toll of the violence and what could be done.
The Community Media Workshop and a broad coalition of organizations that deal with violence, called Strengthening Chicago’s Youth, is putting on the meeting.
WBEZ reporter and South Side bureau chief Natalie Moore is the moderator for our event. We will have close to 30 organizations along with public officials waiting at tables separately to offer their insights and contacts.
Think speed interviewing. Think dozens of stories. Think contacts you never had before.
The meeting is from 9 am to 10:30 am on June 28th at 33 East Congress, first floor, Columbia College, journalism building (Congress and Wabash) CTA bus and train stops are nearby. Here’s the link for a map: http://mapq.st/LzUNYs.
