We first announced the creation of the DEI Coalition for Anti-Racist, Equitable, and Just Newsrooms at SRCCON 2020, our annual conference.

DEI Coalition For Anti-Racist, Equitable, And Just Newsrooms

To move toward a future where all journalists can work in newsrooms that are anti-racist, equitable, inclusive, and collaborative, and where the communities we’ve long ignored can trust in journalism, OpenNews is co-creating with the community two digital organizing spaces focused on organizing, collective action, and knowledge sharing in the service of a more equitable journalism industry.
