On Jan. 6, we witnessed the importance of fact-based expression and journalism as essential tools of democracy. And we also saw it under attack.
Join Poynter senior faculty Joie Chen as she talks to Julio Cortez, a photographer with the Associated Press who covered the siege at the Capitol and the high-security inauguration that followed two weeks later.
Journalists, educators and citizens are invited to tune in for this free On Poynt session Wednesday, Jan. 27 at noon Eastern. There will be time for questions at the end of the session, moderated by Chen and Julio Cortez.
