You are invited to join The Denver Post Photojournalism staff for an exclusive screening of "The Fire Line: Wildfire in Colorado," a 30-minute documentary that explores the growing threat of wildfires in Colorado and what can be done to counter the problem. Following the screening, staff videojournalist Mahala Gaylord and photojournalist Helen H. Richardson will be available to talk about working on the project and answer audience questions.
Before the documentary screening, photojournalist Andy Cross will be presenting staff work from 2008 on child poverty in Colorado. The Denver Post is currently preparing to do a followup story as the number of children in Colorado, particularly from minority populations, continues to increase. Between 2000 and 2012 in Colorado, the number of children living in poverty grew by more than 11%, the eighth-fastest growing rate in the United States. The national average increased by less than 2% in that same time.
Denver Post Photojournalism staff members Andy Cross, Mahala Gaylord and Helen H. Richardson.
