Policing, Race and Community Safety: One Year After George Floyd

This month marks the sober anniversary of the police killing of George Floyd, which ignited global protests and renewed efforts to reform or dismantle policing. In our next webinar, we'll examine the price society pays for a criminal-legal system that disproportionately arrests, punishes and kills Black people. And we'll look at how reporters can best cover this evolving story in original and powerful ways.

Columbia Energy Journalism Initiative

The Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University is excited to announce an open call for applications for the 2021 Energy Journalism Initiative seminar, which will be held online.

Rapid shifts are underway in the energy sector, new government policies are taking shape in the U.S. and other countries and climate change is getting more attention than ever before. It is essential that journalists have the knowledge necessary to report on energy with insight and nuance. They are key to improving the dialogue around energy and environmental issues, creating a well-informed public, and helping public and private sector leaders make sound choices about our energy future.

The program is open to journalists reporting on energy and the environment for print, broadcast and online news organizations, although preference is given to those relatively new to the beat with five or fewer years on it.
