Covering Protests: Journalists Under Attack

Event Date: 
June 5, 2020

As protests against the police killing of George Floyd – and killings of other black Americans – sweep across the United States, journalists covering the unrest have found themselves repeatedly targeted. The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) cites at least 125 press freedom violations in the U.S., including attacks by police with rubber bullets and pepper spray, since May 29.

Join the International Center for Journalists on June 5, 2020, 10:00 a.m. ET, for a special event on this alarming trend, featuring Linda Tirado, a freelance photojournalist who was blinded in one eye while covering the Minneapolis protests; Branden Hunter, neighborhood reporter for the Detroit Free Press; Maria Salazar-Ferro, emergencies director at CPJ; and Ahmer Khan, winner of the 2020 Human Rights Press Award for his coverage of unrest in Kashmir.
