Movement Journalism: Reporting for Liberation

Journalism is a critical part of social justice movements: it uncovers and disseminates needed information, uplifts the work of people who are making transformative change, and shapes public dialogue. In this facilitated discussion, we’ll look at the historic roots of movement journalism and contemporary examples of reporting that advances liberation for all people. We’ll explore how this approach can address challenges––from credibility to community engagement––that journalists of all persuasions are grappling with. For background on movement journalism, check out the report “Out of Struggle: Strengthening and Expanding Movement Journalism in the U.S. South”
