When the Press Badge Doesn't Protect You

During the protests that followed the death of George Floyd, there were widespread incidents of journalists being attacked or arrested by police despite identifying themselves as press. The U.S. Press Freedom Tracker reports more than 430 aggressions against reporters during these protests. This online program will offer firsthand accounts of attacks as well as commentary on such incidents. Confirmed panelists: Independent journalist Maria Trahan Martinez and Kirstin McCudden of the Freedom of the Press Foundation.
