The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press and the DART Center for Journalism and Trauma will host a practical training on covering high-conflict situations in Western rural communities. In an expert-led discussion, participants will learn about media safety and building resilience when reporting on issues such as white separatism, militias, and domestic terrorism. Particular attention will be paid to the lived experience of the local newsrooms, freelancers, and journalists actively engaged in community-based reporting on these issues, as well as specific forms of intimidation aimed at journalists who present as Indigenous, Black, Latino, Asian, or female. The panelists will cover identifying and reporting threats, techniques for managing hostility, dealing with pushback on reporting or soliciting editorial content, collaboration among news organizations, contingency planning, and emergency communications. This training is sponsored by SPJ Oregon.
