In November 2016, I organized and led a week-long journalism training workshop in Cape Town with 24 journalists from 15 countries across Sub-Saharan Africa aimed at improving reporting coverage of LGBTQI+ rights and religion. The reporting guide I wrote for use in subsequent workshops is available here (compressed version here). I also put together this living database and source guide to assist journalists as they report on LGBTQI+ issues in Sub-Saharan Africa. I’ll be hosting a follow-up training in November 2017.
In November 2014, I organized and led a week-long journalism training workshop in Yangon with 15 journalists from across Myanmar aimed at improving reporting coverage of religious freedom and conflict. A summary of the training is available here. A list of resources used during the training is here.
I served as Contributing Editor for the Second Edition of Religion News Association’s Reporting on Religion Primer, available below.

Watch Moderating Religious Hatred Online, a September 2014 Google Hangout panel I hosted and moderated featuring media professionals from across the world debating and discussing how best to moderate online comments when religious hatred and intolerance come into play.
