Missing Kids and The Media: Breaking the Biases
In this second part of our two-episode series on kidnappings, media coverage, and the Latino community, I am finally dissecting the term "Missing White Girl Syndrome"---where did the phrase come from, why are white women overrepresented in missing person cases, and what can be done to address the disparity? Alongside Immigrantly's research, you'll hear from Liz Alarcón, our collaborator's founder and executive director, in these episodes, Project Pulso. Despite the complex subject, this finale to our two-parter is a meaningful conversation I look forward to sharing with you all.
Please share the love and leave us a review on Apple Podcasts to help more people find us!
