Covering Immigration in a Trump Era:

How news organizations are finding unique ways to tell the stories of their immigrant communities

Under the new federal administration, covering Immigration is more important than ever in Southern California. Talk of The Wall, The Travel Ban and the Refugee Crackdown has pushed local news to get creative and use social media to tell the stories that impact a large majority of their listeners, viewers and readers.

And as the Trump administration makes plans for a border wall, how to fix the country’s immigration system and how to defend its controversial travel ban in the courts, there’s a growing hunger in SoCal for engaging coverage about how policy changes will impact their lives and their communities.

Join the Greater L.A. Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists on Thursday, February 23 to explore this complex issue. Our panel will look into how journalists are telling the unfolding immigration story in our communities with sensitivity, depth and context. How reporters negotiate time and resources with editors and producers who may not understand the ongoing demographic changes in the nation and state. And much more.
