Ethics in Journalism: Reporting on Human Trafficking

October 9, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

SM-MarthaMendoza  Join Martha Mendoza, a Pulitzer-Prize winning AP reporter, for a discussion on the ethical issues that arise when reporting on human trafficking.

Mendoza will share experiences from her widely praised reporting on modern slavery on fishing vessels and in slavery hotspots, such as Malaysia and Thailand. Connect with leading anti-slavery organizations, including Polaris, Free the Slaves, Walk Free, GoodWeave, CIW, the South Bay Coalition to End Human Trafficking, and others as they explore questions such as how does a reporter navigate publishing a story on slaves while the slaves are still being held captive? Or should an expose on a company’s supply chain go to print despite concerns that it could impede progress?

These questions and more will be explored, followed by an audience Q&A.
