For journalists covering the Democratic National Convention events taking place in Milwaukee and virtually in regions nationwide, there are a number of legal issues to consider to stay safe while reporting.
Join attorneys from the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press and the National Press Photographers Association for this free training session to learn more about journalists’ right to record, how to safely report on protests that may occur around the conventions, ways to avoid arrest, what to expect and do if arrested, local bail procedures, and more. Journalists will come away with practical tips and legal resources to help support their work around the 2020 elections.
This webinar is part of a series of training sessions hosted by the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, National Press Photographers Association, and Committee to Protect Journalists for journalists covering the 2020 political conventions.
