Community Journalism: Ethics, Objectivity, and Equity

Ethics, objectivity, and our innate biases play a unique role in the community newsroom, even more so in a community newsroom that centers racial and social justice. This training will open up a discussion on ethics in community journalism: what journalistic ethics are, what ethical questions we ask as community journalists, and how we communicate those values and ethics to our larger community.
