Reporting on Violence and Trauma
Thursday, June 7, 2012
The Maynard Institute and Bay Area News Group, with sponsorship from The California Endowment, have partnered to launch OaklandEffect.com, a site dedicated to reporting on the impact of violence in Oakland. Visit http://oaklandeffect.com to read stories by Scott Johnson, our featured investigative reporter, as he explores the many costs of violence, from emotional trauma to financial costs to the city.
In conjunction with the site launch, the Maynard Institute hosted a webinar on June 8, 2012 with Scott Johnson in conversation with Aly Colón, a journalism trainer and former faculty member at the Poynter Institute.
Work We <3 | FDP
Instead of spending all our time calling out journalism that doesn't work, we want to find work we like. We'd like to encourage our readers to submit links to content that is moving or challenging and that goes beyond the standard narrative either at the level of form or content. In other words, we want to see journalism that works.
We're particularly interested in work at the nexus of the following categories:
- Please include a comment explaining why the content you're sharing works.
- Comments can be as short or long as desired.
