Des Moines Register reporter Andrea Sahouriwas covering a Black Lives Matter protest last year when she was pepper sprayed in the face and arrested by a Des Moines police officer. Sahouri and others made it clear she was a journalist, but prosecutors refused to drop the charges. After a three-day jury trial, it took jurors less than two hours to acquit Sahouri of all charges. During this Depth & Dialogue session, Sahouri will share her harrowing story, talk about the importance of a free press and answer questions.

Moderated by Amber Mohmand, Iowa State Daily and Des Moines Register
