Call for Pitches: Misinformation in Immigrant Communities | The Markup

The Markup is seeking pitches for stories on how misinformation impacts immigrant communities, especially non-native English speakers, in the United States, as a part of our “Languages of Misinformation” series.

We want pitches from people who are:

  • Already connected to an immigrant community experiencing misinformation. You may be connected because you want to cover your own community, or because you’ve built relationships with the community in other ways. We encourage pitches from reporters who want to cover their own communities’ challenges with misinformation.
  • Able to communicate with that community in their native language. Your language skills need to be proficient enough that you can communicate in whatever format your sources normally use. For example, in addition to being able to interview sources verbally, you’ll probably need writing skills to text with sources using their apps of choice. However, your written proficiency doesn’t need to extend to being able to write articles in another language. (If you are, that’s a bonus—but we can also help with article translation.)
