Join Law at the Margins in collaboration with Evrybit, veteran journalists and social justice innovators as we discuss how mobile journalism can strengthen marginalized communities by amplifying voices, stories and images that are often underrepresented, misrepresented or ignored.
Mobile journalism—where reporters use portable technologies to gather news—provides a unique opportunity to share stories from local communities in the United States and around the world.
Can these tools be used to help strengthen historically marginalized communities?
Law at the Margins in collaboration with the Evrybit mobile storytelling platform, veteran journalists, and social justice innovators will discuss existing tools that residents can use to document what’s happening in their neighborhoods and become their own trusted news source.
There’s never been a more important time than now to leverage collaborative reporting and build cooperative networks to expand reach and deepen access for journalists and activists. What will it take to create the kind of community-based newsrooms that can hold power accountable and humanize our world?
