Human Rights and the Media

This panel discussion brings together innovative practitioners and thinkers who are committed to using photojournalism, multimedia, and documentary filmmaking to promote social change. How can we take advantage of the tools that new technology has given us to address human rights issues? How can media go beyond raising awareness and help alleviate social problems?

Presentations by speakers will be followed by Q&A with the audience. The event is free and open to the public.
