Mapping tools that reveal inequalities in our communities
We have stories throughout the Network on issues that have directly affected marginalized communities, but what else is occurring there? Is this story a boiling point? Where else across the country has this same issue happened? How did it affect them? This will use Census data and two new network tools: Diversity Dashboard and Pass the Mic, to see where stories land and how to cultivate follow ups with sources.
Featuring: Krystal Nurse, reporter in Lansing, Mich., CJ Benjamin, director of audience engagement and trust and Rachel Kilroy, project manager in our content innovations group
