COMMUNITY EDUCATION: April 20th, 7pm @ Foothills Unitarian Church
First Amendment at Risk
In the era of “fake news” and “alternative facts,” the value of a free press is not to be underestimated. Kevin Miyazaki and Craig Ruttle are two distinguished photographers who have traveled the world to document compelling events, and NoCo Spark is thrilled to bring them to Fort Collins on April 20, 2017 to share their photos and engage in an discussion about the current First Amendment challenges confronting the press. Ruttle will present on the international refugee crisis, and Miyazaki will share photos of the World War II Japanese internment camps. Both of these powerful examples of photo journalism take on new resonance in light of the Trump Administration’s attempt to temporarily ban refugees and individuals from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the U.S.
This talk is free and open to the public!
