Nearly every social justice issue intersects with race in some way, resulting in people of color being uniquely impacted. However, many activists find it hard to talk about race. Race Forward, publisher of Colorlines, will share strategies and some "do’s and don’ts" for discussing race with the media. Participants will be introduced to a newly-developed “Racial Justice Media Reference Guide” designed to help activists who interact with the media more effectively communicate key racial justice issues.
