  • Seattle Journalists Uncover Family Homelessness

    October 1, 2010

    The Journalism Fellowships on Family Homelessness, a project of the Center for Strategic Communications, presents "Uncovering Family Homelessness,” a forum showcasing the work of eight journalists exploring family homelessness, at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, October 21, at Town Hall in Seattle.

    The fellowships project links professional journalists with students in the College of Arts of Arts and Sciences . Their work has already appeared in the Seattle Times and on National Public Radio.  The project is funded by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

     “While raising the visibility of this important problem in our society, the fellowships provided a terrific learning opportunity for our students as well as for the journalists,” said Barry Mitzman, Director of the Center on Strategic Communications.

     Tickets for Uncovering Family Homelessness are $5 at www.brownpapertickets.com or 800-838-3006, or at the door. Proceeds benefit the Seattle/King County Coalition on Homelessness (SKCCH). More information:  www.townhallseattle.org

    The Center for Strategic Communications, a program in the Communications Department  in the College of Arts Sciences, oversees a student-run consultancy committed to helping values-driven organizations. Members of the student agency engage and service real world clients to achieve specific communication goals.
