The facts are clear: poor and minority kids don't have the same access to journalism training and equipment as wealthier white kids. When our perceptions of people and events are increasingly shaped by online media, its even more critical that we hear the voices of the underrepresented so that we can make informed decisions to improve society.

This presentation was given at the What If...? Conference in Philadelphia on October 18, 2014.
