Chancellor to Host Ethnic and Foreign Media Panel Nov. 9
The Philadelphia Bar Association will host a free Chancellors Forum, Meet the Ethnic and Foreign Language Media on Wednesday, Nov. 9, from 12-2 p.m. at the Bar headquarters, 1101 Market St., 11th Fl. Conference Center. The event is co-sponsored by the Associations Public Interest Section and Bar-News Media Committee.
Panelists will include Daniel Maldonaldo, director of operations for Al Dia
; Darek Barcikowski, publisher of White Eagle
(Polish) newspaper; and Jorje Quintana, anchor for WFMZ-TV 69. Top representatives from the Brazilian News Week
, Hellenic News of America
and America - The Ukrainian Catholic Newspaper
will also be on the panel.
The forum is a continuation of the Philadelphia Bar Associations effort to bring immigrant communities and the legal system closer together to reduce cultural and other barriers between people and the justice system. The program will focus on how to reach and communicate with the ethnic and non-English language media. While the event helps attorneys in the public interest sector let the ethnic and foreign-media know about the legal and other services that they offer, all interested members of the Bar are invited to attend.
The Bar Association held a similar forum on March 2, and 120 lawyers and legal advocates attended. Representatives attended from Korean, Chinese, Russian and Spanish publications. A complimentary lunch will be provided, but RSVP is required.
