Reduced-Price Early Bird Tickets Now On Sale!

As the term “fake news” infects the country’s vernacular, our aim is to reassure people that cold, hard facts are as important as ever. Our main questions: As strong and independent media makers, what can we learn from each other? And how can we collaborate as we move forward?

Keynote speakers will include activist Erika Andiola, professor Salamishah Tillet, and a conversation with journalist Alison Stewart.

Panels and workshops will cover how to be an effective ally in the media, reporting on beats where the majority of sources are men, international journalism, negotiation skills and tactics, identity and objectivity, and media criticism in the age of fake news. Panelists include journalists and media-makers from the New York Times, NBC News, Colorlines, The News Guild, The Bronx Documentary Center, and more.

All ticket prices include bagel breakfast, lunch, post-conference reception, a ticket for our raffle (with awesome prizes from Verso Books, Democracy Now!, Babeland, and others), and more!
