The Women’s Media Center stands in solidarity with the individuals and organizations fighting to end the systemic racism and police brutality that caused the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and so many others. We support the Black Lives Matter movement and we abhor the violence directed at African Americans, protesters, and journalists covering peaceful civil rights protests. We are committed to building a country where equal rights, equal justice, and equal opportunity are the reality for all women and men.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to impact the world, journalists — despite challenging conditions — are working 24/7 to keep citizens informed. The Women’s Media Center is deeply grateful to reporters, producers, editors, technicians, camera operators and others who are carrying out this task that is so fundamental to our democracy and, thus, helping us to cope and keep safe.
