Our nation is evolving, its demographics forever shifting. The 2010 Census will reveal just how dramatic these changes will be.
For news organizations to remain relevant,they will need to develop techniques for covering these evolving communities.
The upcoming APME conference at the Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, Fla. will feature a workshop on this very issue.
In advance of theConnecting with your Communities panel on Thursday, Oct. 21,wewant to hear from you.
Please share with usyour examples ofchallenges (and triumphs)you or
your news organization have faced in covering your changing
community.Have you had issues raised by readers related to coverage, or
perhaps conflicts within the newsroom regarding stories or around
hot-button socialissues, like immigration?
Please submit your real-world questions or examples to Oakland TribuneEditor Martin G. Reynolds at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Oct. 15.
We will explore these examples with Maynard Institute for Journalism
Education President Dori Maynard during the workshop.The goal of
