Discuss the mental health issues journalists face in covering conflict and this physically and emotionally grueling story.
Last year, about 93,000 people sought asylum at the southern border, up 67 percent from 2017, according to U.S. government data. More and more are families. Photojournalists have accompanied massed migrants along the caravan route, documenting harrowing trips across rivers, violence at the border, family separation and even death to tell this story to the world. In a panel discussion, Reuters photojournalist Adrees Latif (who won a 2019 Pulitzer Prize for coverage of this story) will join an expert on the mental health issues journalists face in covering conflict to discuss covering this physically and emotionally grueling story, why images can have political and emotional impact and how news organizations decide what images are suitable to run on their pages.
