To discuss Professional Rights and Responsibilities of Journalists and Communication Professionals During Civil Unrest
The Hubbard School of Journalism and Mass Communication faculty and staff take seriously our responsibility to educate the public on the roles and responsibilities of journalists and communication professionals. In the days following the death of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, while in the custody of Minneapolis Police officers, both peaceful and violent protests erupted in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minn. Elected officials and civic leaders called numerous press conferences. Journalists both local to the area and from national and international outlets provided live coverage of the unrest.
As an educational institution committed to professional development and public service, the Hubbard School is organizing a series of Town Hall events on the roles and responsibilities of journalists and communication professionals during this time. The School has reached out to our faculty, alumni, and professionals in the community to invite them to share their expertise and experiences in the Town Hall gatherings. The sessions will begin with the School's available faculty leaders, and include alumni and friends who are local and national professionals over the days and weeks ahead.
Please see our Town Hall event page for more information on the webinars and for details on how to register.
Events will be recorded and published on our website and social media after their live broadcast.
