COVID-19: Journalists of Color* Racial Equity Focused Articles
2
Created by Equity Matters Updated on June 4, 2020
3
We know this list is imperfect and incomplete. AND, we value centering the voices of communities of color. Don't miss the 'Community Solutions, Healing, and Care' section below! Thanks, Team Equity Matters (www.equitymattersnw.com)
4
*We have done our best to verify that authors are people of color, via the very imperfect system of searching for online verification of the author self-identifying their race OR visual identification in some cases.
5
We are using the broad term 'Journalists of Color' in the title, but breaking the articles by topic area into more specific groups, currently focused on Native/Indigenous, Black, Asian, and Latino/a/x communities.

If you are able, please financially support Journalists of Color!
