Journalists interested in poverty reporting can attend this training.

The National Press Foundation (NPF) is organizing a four-month series of online briefings to help journalists cover children and families in poverty.

The series will start with "Poverty and inequality 2020," a keynote address by Rev. William J. Barber II, president of Repairers of the Breach, at noon EDT Sept. 2.

Participants will explore poverty-related issues, such as trauma and the developing brain; the U.S. policy; education inequality; how the pandemic is affecting the opportunity gap; health care and poverty; and nutrition and hunger.

The training is funded by David and Lucile Packard Foundation, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and the Heising-Simons Foundation.
