The Pulitzer Center education team invites students and their teachers and parents/guardians to join us for a speaker series in which journalists highlight under-reported stories of resilience around the world. At a time when the headlines are dominated by crisis, we will explore stories of hope, joy, and connection while also learning more about how journalists investigate and communicate under-reported stories.

In this webinar, Pablo Albarenga will share his reporting on how Indigenous youth are defending their land and their people in the Amazon. Pablo will show photography and a documentary short film introducing us to some of these activists, and will discuss how he reported this story ethically and powerfully.

Pablo Albarenga is an awarded Uruguayan documentary photographer, visual storyteller, and National Geographic Explorer whose work is mainly focused Human Rights issues in Latin America. Pablo has dedicated his work to investigating, studying, and photographing the colonization process that still affects traditional populations in Latin America.

While this webinar is open to all students as well as their teachers and guardians, it is recommended for grades 6–12.
