Keeping the Peace, Peacefully: A Special Reporting Institute [Journalism Training]

The state of police community relations is a critical issue today. This two-day workshop will arm journalists with facts, analyses and reporting strategies to make their reporting matter. Scholars and experts from across the United States will cover issues ranging from race and community relations and police strategies to control violence, to police accountability and the mental health challenges police officers face, on and off the job.

We will also visit Chicago neighborhoods confronted by the contagion of violence to hear about the challenges and successes faced there.

The workshop welcomes journalists of diverse races, genders and ages. We encourage journalists from mainstream, community and ethnic news media and from all media platforms. We also welcome high school and college faculty, who will be able to apply the training to their work.

The costs of your travel and stay in Chicago for the workshop will be covered. The workshop will be held on Friday, April 24th and Saturday, April 25th at Columbia College Chicago. There will be a brief reception on the evening of Thursday, April 23rd.

Terry Harper Memorial Scholarships Application Deadline [Grants] [Convention]

This year, SPJ will award up to five convention scholarships in memory of Terry Harper, SPJ’s executive director from 2002 to 2009. Terry passed away on June 2, 2009 after a two-year battle with brain cancer. At the young age of 45, he left behind a loving wife, two teenage sons and an SPJ family that loved and respected him. As executive director, one of Terry’s highest priorities was the development of high-caliber training opportunities for SPJ members. In honor of Terry’s lasting efforts to improve SPJ and the entire journalism community, the Sigma Delta Chi Foundation set up a memorial fund following his death. With a generous outpouring of support, the Society can now proudly provide up to five scholarships to SPJ members to attend its annual convention. Details
