Covering jails and justice

September 25, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

For the last three years, The Poynter Institute has trained hundreds of journalists around America as part of our Covering Jails project. In this one-hour webinar, journalist Jamiles Lartey of The Marshall Project will discuss justice reform efforts as they relate to the upcoming 2020 election.

We will examine the Democratic and Republican platforms for justice reform, empowering journalists with the knowledge they’ll need to ask direct questions to candidates, including U.S. House of Representatives and Senate candidates. The session will be hosted by Poynter senior faculty Al Tompkins, who has led Covering Jails workshops in a dozen cities since 2018.
