Communities in Flux

Tuesday, December 02, 2008

With media companies slashing their workforce and opportunities for in-depth reporting waning, the Journalism Center on Children & Families has some promising new free resources for covering the impact of economic turmoil and changing demographics.

The materials, available online at http://www.journalismcenter.org/fellowships/ConferenceMaterialschicago.html, include source lists, speaker handouts and Power point slides from a McCormick Specialized Reporting institute on "Communities in Flux: The Impact of Economic Turmoil and Shifting Demographics" in Chicago Nov. 16-18. Topics included the foreclosure crisis, local government budgets, rise of the working poor, and more. Check it out for some quick, but substantive reporting ideas.
