Description

GlobalGirls Get the Story As part of its "From Playgrounds to Battlegrounds" feature, the ABA Journal sponsored the new media training of four teenage Chicagoans who contributed to the reporting of the story. The students are part of the nonprofit organization GlobalGirl Media, which works with young women from underserved communities around the world. The GlobalGirl reporters, who have grown up in some of Chicago's most dangerous neighborhoods, conducted video interviews with their family members about guns. From their Chicago news bureau, the GlobalGirls have reported on other community issues through multimedia storytelling, producing video features like Living Off Tips, in which they explore how low-wage, tip-dependent restaurant workers--who are predominantly women of color--make ends meet. The team also produced a three-part series of interviews with feminist activist Gloria Steinem.
