JOURNALIST TRAINING SEMINARS HIGHLIGHT FREE EXPRESSION
The seminar is part of a three-year initiative the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) has recently launched in the region to raise awareness of free-expression issues among the media. ICFJ's project, "Covering Freedom of Expression: Resources for Journalists," will include a series of workshops taught by local and international trainers in the capital cities of 22 Latin American countries. Participants will receive hands-on training to identify and develop story ideas and learn reporting techniques for covering free-expression issues.
The project is funded by the Robert R. McCormick Tribune Foundation.
