Are Refugees Accurately Portrayed in the Media?
Attend our Refugee Integration Conference to Find Out.
Refugee resettlement and immigration are hot topics in the media, especially in light of recent events. More often than not, refugees are depicted online as subjects of oppression. If they’re lucky, refugees have the opportunity to share their success as U.S citizens. Nevertheless, there is an apparent disconnect between the reality of refugee success in the United States and the media’s portrayal of struggle.
As announced earlier, the theme of our Refugee Integration Conference is The Story of Our Journey. On day one, we will honor this theme with a panel of local and national journalists that will address the media coverage of refugees. If you’re a journalist interested in the learning how to accurately depict refugees in your stories, we encourage you to attend!
