Session description: Prisons and jails are closed off from society by design. Their walls and fences keep journalists out and secrets in, making reporting on them all the more difficult and vital. Hear from reporters from the Associated Press, New York Times, Marshall Project and Flatwater Free Press who’ve exposed abuse, neglect and other injustices in correctional facilities from Rikers Island to the Bay Area. Harness their techniques, tools and best practices to produce more impactful journalism. With more than a million people in the U.S. locked up in prisons or jails, there are many more important stories to be told.
