1 Year Later: Student Journalism in Historic Year

From covering remote learning, racial justice and policing in America, and the presidential election, student journalists excelled in adjusting to a new reporting environment. Join them for a discussion about how a recalibrated journalism curriculum gave them a sense of agency and ensured that their stories were part of the first draft of history. Attendees will be encouraged to think about how to cultivate, prioritize, and elevate youth voice in relation to issues that matter to Gen Z.
