Telling Jessica's Story: A Conversation with Heather Knight & Gabrielle Lurie

Feb 3, 2022 · San Francisco, United States of America

In December, the San Francisco Chronicle explored the story of Laurie Steves, a Seattle woman who gave up everything to find her daughter lost on the streets of San Francisco. The Chronicle’s Heather Knight and Gabrielle Lurie shared the life of Steves and her daughter, Jessica DiDia, in the context of a homelessness and addiction crisis that has wracked the Tenderloin for years. Heather Knight and Gabrielle Lurie talk with KQED’s Ernesto Aguilar for ONA San Francisco about their remarkable journalism and the process of putting sensitive coverage together. What makes for journalism that sticks with you? How important has the city’s handling (or lack thereof) of these social issues been as a backdrop to the story? You’re invited to learn from two of the Bay Area’s best journalists how such detailed storytelling comes together in service of audiences and the community at large.
