Journalists with deep experience addressing issues of race and gender will provide concrete advice for your specific situation. They approach your question the same way they approach news stories, conducting research and providing context with their responses.
Maybe you just want someone to backread your story to ensure it’s written with sensitivity. We’re happy to do it.
Even if you choose not to follow our advice, you’ll leave with an enlightened grasp of some of the race and gender issues roiling the news media. And whatever happens during our discussion, it’s all off the record.
You’ll hear from journalists who are getting paid for their time. But you don’t pay them. SPJ does.
You’ll have a calm, thoughtful exchange about sensitive topics that have been thoroughly researched, whether through interviews with individuals or by consulting books, articles, stylebooks or other material.
