Poynter Workshop on Disability Journalism

I'm off today to be a panelist at a workshop intended to put advocates in the same room with journalists and PR execs to talk about better reporting on disability.
A McCormick Specialized Reporting Institute
The Poynter Institute, Access Living and ADA 25 Chicago invite reporters from all media to apply for a two-day in-depth workshop “Disability Reports: Fresh Angles — Covering Disability within Education, Employment, Healthcare and Housing”
Later I get to be on a panel with some outstanding Chicago reporters and NPR's Joe Shapiro. And yes, I am bringing my copy of No Pity for him to sign. I'm not proud.
