IMFTO Report Workshop
What are the stories that you want to tell about yourself, your family, neighborhood, and community as it relates to COVID-19 and racism? Journalists share news stories so that others can understand what is happening and take action to make things better. Sometimes they don’t always report well on what is happening for Indigenous, Black, and POC communities. But you can share your news stories to change the world.
On January 30, 2021 from 11:00am to 12:30pm, professional journalists from The Globe and Mail and other media will take your ideas from the IMFTO Design Workshop and help you transform them into a news editorial for the Globe and Mail.
