Making News Coverage of Working Class Women More Community Centered

Mainstream journalism is often extractive for working class women and especially low-wage Black, Latinx, Indigenous and Asian-American women workers. Time and again, news organizations parachute into communities, which results in stories written about rather than for the people covered in the reporting. This approach erodes trust in journalism overall and leaves communities with less access to the information they need.

Join the Center for Public Integrity with OpenNews to hear from some of the journalists leading that work, and from some community members with further insights about how all journalists can ensure their work meaningfully serves and represents working class women.

When: Friday Sept. 16 from 9:30 am to 12:15 pm MT
