The National Press Foundation (NPF) is organizing a four-month series of online briefings to help journalists cover children and families in poverty.
The series will start with “Poverty and inequality 2020,” a keynote address by Rev. William J. Barber II, president of Repairers of the Breach, at noon EDT Sept. 2.
Journalists interested in poverty reporting can attend this training.
Participants will explore poverty-related issues, such as trauma and the developing brain; the U.S. policy; education inequality; how the pandemic is affecting the opportunity gap; health care and poverty; and nutrition and hunger.
The training is funded by David and Lucile Packard Foundation, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and the Heising-Simons Foundation.
