Covering Muslim Communities & Islam 101

Thursday, July 27, 2017 - 9:00am to 10:30am

Recent national events have placed immigrants and refugees in the spotlight and under fire – particularly Muslim Americans. How can we come together as journalists to transform and enhance our coverage of Muslim America? This session will cover how and why current coverage falls short, the best-practice tips on providing appropriate context and resources that stand ready to help. The panel will be moderated by Pia Sarkar, Deputy East Region Editor for the Associated Press. Faiza will be joined on this panel with Sana Saeed, Producer and host for AJ+.
