WASHINGTON, DC, 26 March 2017 — American University’s School of Communication and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting co-hosted an exciting, informative and much-needed presentation and panel discussion titled, “Women In Conflict.” From left to right, Cassandra Vinograd, Natalie Keyssar and Hannah Allam, held the attention of a full-house crowd — in awe of their knowledge, their poise and their presentations — for more than an hour and a half. They told students, colleagues, working professionals, and the general public how to stay safe while covering conflict abroad — and at home.

MEXICO CITY, 8 March 2017 — This is a screen grab from video shot in Mexico City on Wednesday 8 March 2017 by American University graduate teaching assistant Matt Cipollone for the pilot, “Freelancers” film. Gerardo Carrillo (L) is a long-time friend and colleague from my days working and living in Central America. We both were freelancers at the time. He later founded the Associated Press (AP) video unit in Mexico City. Journalists like Gerardo often are sources of critical information and support for people like me, when I travel to foreign countries and work, once again, as a freelancer. Gerardo is seen here covering a march on International Women’s Day on Avenida de la Reforma in the Mexican capital. #BillGentileFreelancersFilms
