Immigration is a pressing topic for journalists, not only in border states but in New York as well. It’s an issue that can involve complex ethical issues – about protecting the privacy and safety of one’s sources, reporting across language and cultural divides, addressing the power gulf between reporters and their subjects, and considering legal risks to immigrants and their families, among others.

Join us Oct. 29 for a Lunch & Learn session led by Mazin Sidahmed, co-executive director at Documented, an independent, non-profit newsroom dedicated to reporting with and for immigrant communities in New York City.

The program, which includes a light lunch, will be held at the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute building at 20 Cooper Square in New York City.
