Covering sensitive issues: #NoSuchThing as a child prostitute

During a conference in Los Angeles last month, youth reporters learned from each other about the importance of using sensitive and deliberative language while covering news issues. “To say a child can be a prostitute implies that they can consent to sex; which as a minor they are unable to do, yet they are still arrested. Due to this contradiction a campaign has started called #nosuchthing.” More of the discussion is on Access Sacramento.
