The Portland Mercury’s own Alex Zielinski will host this online conversation with reporters and documentarians (like Tuck Woodstock, Donovan Smith, Andrew Jankowski, Mariah Harris, Catalina Gaitán, and Annie Schutz) who have spent hours upon hours covering the last five months of Black Lives Matter protests in Portland—many of whom faced confrontations with the police. "You’ll hear honest reactions on topics such as their motivations, confrontations and arrests by police, journalistic ethics, personal safety, and how they keep their message centered on the Black Lives Matter movement. This is the type of behind-the-scenes, candid conversation you won't be hearing anywhere else," writes The Mercury's Wm. Steven Humphrey.
