ON IMMIGRATION AND JOURNALISM is presented as part of California Humanities’ CA 2020: Democracy and the Informed Citizen initiative, a year-long partnership with California community colleges designed to engage a broad cross-section of young Californians in a consideration of the vital connections between democracy and journalism. The initiative brings Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists to California campuses, provides hands-on media literacy training, and helps amplify young people’s voices and perspectives in the public dialogue.
CA 2020: Democracy and the Informed Citizen is funded in part by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation’s Democracy and the Informed Citizen Initiative, in partnership with the Pulitzer Prizes and administered by the Federation of State Humanities Councils. Additional support for this initiative has been provided by The Virginia and Alfred Harrell Foundation, The McConnell Foundation, the Parker Foundation, Nordson Corporation Foundation, and Knight Foundation Fund.
