At a time when news outlets are more dependent than ever on freelance journalists, the risks those freelancers face have never been greater, observes the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
You can join the Pulitzer Center and American University’s School of Communication and Center for Latin American and Latino Studies for a discussion on Sunday, March 29, in Washington, DC, of what that work is like — and what freelancers and news outlets can do to reduce the risks.
“Freelancers: The Challenge of Freelance Journalism in a World Filled with Risks” is part of the Pulitzer Center’s series of inaugural Campus Consortium events with American University, one of its newest educational partners.
The Pulitzer Center is among a coalition of major news companies and journalism organizations to call for worldwide freelance protection standards, endorsing a set of best practices for freelance journalists and news organizations to enhance the safety of journalists working in hostile environments.
