The Center for Community Media is hosting a forum with immigrant media leaders on effective digital tactics for covering and engaging with their communities during an immigration crackdown, pandemic, and civil uprising.
CCM released today a report showcasing 50 immigrant-serving news outlets, featuring 17 in-depth case studies, and identifying four characteristics that the most successful share. As media as a whole struggles with diverse representation, these immigrant outlets publish in more than 30 languages, on more than 25 platforms, in 23 states.
The forum will review findings from the report, and feature leaders from outlets whose work is highlighted.
Brenda Murphy and Rocio Tirado (Jambalaya News, New Orleans)
Garry Pierre-Pierre (The Haitian Times, New York)
Raj Singh (Punjabi Radio USA, San Jose)
Malek Abdulsamad (Chicago in Arabic, Chicago)
Other panelists may be added and many of the leaders of the other 50 outlets identified in the study will participate in the conversation.
