Amy Goodman is the host and executive producer of Democracy Now!, a national, daily, independent, award-winning news program airing on over 1,400 public television and radio stations worldwide.
She will be in conversation with Samuel Freedman, a professor of journalism at Columbia University, award-winning author, and former columnist at The New York Times.
After the conversation, stick around for a cocktail party featuring snacks by Gefilteria’s Liz Alpern, former New Voices publisher and co-author of The Gefilte Manifesto: New Recipes for Old World Jewish Foods.
You will be joining 30 student writers from campuses across the country, from UC Berkeley to Brown. They are reporters, artists, filmmakers, and podcasters, spending a weekend learning from each other and from professional journalists (from NPR, Jewish Currents, and other outlets).
Support the work of this next generation of Jewish journalists and thinkers by giving what you can!
New Voices is committed to providing training, mentorship, and a unique platform to young Jewish writers, especially Mizrahi and Sephardic Jews, queer/trans Jews, Jews of Color, and Jews with disabilities.
Published since 1991 by the independent, non-profit, student-run Jewish Student Press Service, New Voices is America’s only national magazine written and published by and for Jewish college students.
The Jewish Student Press Service was established in 1971 to provide quality, student-written articles to the then-thriving network of Jewish campus publications across the country. Many of today’s most accomplished Jewish journalists got their start at the Jewish Student Press Service. Current and past editors of the New York Jewish Week, the New Jersey Jewish News, The Forward, Dissent, the Jewish Telegraph Agency, Lilith and Sh’ma are all past contributors to the Jewish Student Press Service.
With New Voices, the Press Service continues its tradition of cultivating the next generation of Jewish journalists, creating a Jewish media that speaks to young Jews, and empowering Jewish students to take ownership of their heritage. The magazine is produced by one straight-outta-college staff member in New York and a network of student writers, bloggers and editors from campuses across the country on a shoestring annual budget.
The Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard honored Goodman with the 2014 I.F. Stone Medal for Journalistic Independence Lifetime Achievement Award....
