Have you lost something because of a crime?
on July 15, 2010
A notice from our colleagues in UC Berkeley’s News 21 program, a national partnership between 12 universities and the Carnegie-Knight Initiative to support in-depth and investigative reporting. They are looking for Bay Area residents to interview for a project that may run on Oakland North in the future. They write:
We’re two journalists participating in a project called News21, looking at crime and California’s prison system. We’re working on a video about victims of crimes, and the sense of loss they experience. We looking for victims of all sorts of crimes, everything from those affected by murders, rape and domestic abuse, to people who’ve been victims of crimes like stolen bikes, laptops, cars, muggings, hit and runs, etc.
Basically we’re looking for people who have been victims of a crime, who can take part in a short video interview for our piece. The whole process shouldn’t take more than half an hour. The project we produce will run on our overall project’s final site, berkeley.news21.com and may run on Oakland North and its sibling site Richmond Confidential as well. If interested, people can contact Armand Emamdjomeh at firstname.lastname@example.org or Amanda Dyer at email@example.com or (916) 267-0199.
