Covering immigration on May 1


There will be marches on May 1 but that is only one story on one day.

How else can you cover immigration and keep it fresh and pertinent?

What has changed today here for immigrants and refugees? What are the stories that celebrate immigrants and the stories that they need?

Here are some tips from the IRE-Investigative Reporters and Editors – who recently held a workshop here for the ethnic news media. Look over these – there a number listed.

Again, please let me know if you are doing some reporting that you want to share.
