2004 Bay Area NGO-Media Dialogue:

Bringing Home ‘Bad News’: Increasing Awareness in the US of Conflict, Violence and Disaster Abroad

New College Theater, 777 Valencia St., San Francisco

Panelists include:

David Michaelis, Director of Current Affairs, WorldLink TV
Andrew Ross, Executive Foreign-National Editor, San Francisco Chronicle
Fairuz Taqi-Eddin, Media and Event Coordinator, CARE
Mary Ann Tenuto Sanchez, Founding Member, Chiapas Support Committee
Jeff Perlstein, Executive Director, Media Alliance (Moderator)

This dialogue features a panel of NGO staff and Bay Area journalists as they discuss international crises and the range of their coverage and awareness in the US. Why do some foreign stories of crises get covered while others seem to be overlooked in the US? How can NGO and media professionals accurately convey at home common hazards experienced abroad? How can they succeed in their international work while protecting themselves in politically sensitive or violent environments? These are only a sample of topics that may be discussed, and the audience is invited to ask questions afterward.
