The organization “Community Action Against Racism” sponsored a meeting over the weekend to talk about how communities of color are covered in the media. The aim was to start a process for setting standards that news organizations can use as guidelines for equitable reporting.
KFAI was a co-sponsor of the event, along with the Main Street Project.
The keynote speaker was Lissa Jones , host of the program “Urban Agenda” on KMOJ-FM.
A segment of Jones' speech was featured on KFAI's Morning Blend. Here's the entire address.
