Event description

Co-sponsored by the Chicago chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists, this event is free, open to journalists and journalism students. It is not a news conference, but part of Public Narrative’s ongoing speed dating programs to update journalists on key issues and introduce them to community sources.

This program is to provide journalists with an understanding of the three executive orders and the legal issues they present despite Chicago’s Sanctuary City designation. And to hear about the problems neighborhoods are already coping with and what they see coming in the future.
