AAJA SF is hosting a panel on immigration at the National Association of Hispanic Journalists’s regional conference on March 22.
The panel, titled, “Uncovering the Hidden Stories of Immigration,” discusses immigration reform. The topic is one of the most pressing issues affecting Latino and Asian Americans, the two largest immigrant groups in this country. A panel of immigration reporters and attorneys will discuss the nuances of covering immigrant communities as well as some of the underreported stories of undocumented immigrants facing deportation.
The conference takes place on March 22 at the SF LGBT Community Center, located at 1800 Market Street in San Francisco. It’s an all day event, but our panel is scheduled from 4 p.m. to 5:15 p.m.
Panelists: 1) Monica Campbell, PRI immigration reporter 2) Momo Chang, freelance journalist 3) Anoop Prasad, Staff Attorney, Immigrant Rights Program, Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Asian Law Caucus 4) Ling Woo Liu, Director of Strategic Communications, Asian Americans Advancing Justice ( moderator)
