Reporting on Race
A black man killed by police. Demonstrations. Journalists cover race when it is impossible to ignore.
But race is a daily, lived reality that touches everyone. To not report its effect on our daily lives is not only ignorant but also inaccurate.
We need to change how reporters cover the systems and cultural assumptions that perpetuate racial divide and inequality.
Reporting on Hunger
Hunger is everywhere. It’s an epidemic — one that hits home in every region of the United States.
1 in 7 Americans struggle to put food on the table. Yet, this often is nowhere to be found within everyday media coverage.
We must change the culture of how journalists cover hunger. Because it’s everywhere. It’s a symptom. And it’s misunderstood.
