Launch of INSI-North America to reduce risks to frontline journalists

The official launch of the International News Safety Institute (INSI) - North America office, which will provide safety training and additional support to North American journalists, will take place in New York on 14 October.

The new initiative comes at a time when many North American media outlets are cutting back on resources for journalists in the field and eliminating safety trainings altogether, notes INSI.

The New York reception will feature a panel of speakers debating the need for a culture of safety in media, including Richard Engel, chief foreign correspondent of NBC News, Santiago Lyon, AP director of photography, Cami McCormick, CBS News correspondent, and Hannah Storm, coordinator of INSI's safety forum.
Ahead of the launch on 14 October, INSI will also hold its annual meeting in the afternoon, to which all are welcome.
