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.

The Work So Far
More than 100 members of the community have signed up to co-create these organizing spaces with us, and we’ve divided everyone up into four main committees, each tackling different questions to help us ensure both spaces are as safe as possible, and serve the community’s goals.
- Safety and Moderation — led by Sophie Ho
- Membership — led by Ashley Alvarado
- Slack Setup — led by Hannah Birch
- Welcome and Onboarding — led by Alisha Wang Savson
Many more people have also signed up to help us spread the word when the community spaces are ready. If you’d like to do the same, sign up here.
