Add Your Name: I Stand with Striking Journalists!
Strong journalism is a core part of a strong democracy.
When news outlets illegally fire their writers, it undermines our democracy and our free press. Misinformation can run rampant. Corruption and corporate greed can go unseen. Research shows that communities with less local news have lower civic engagement and voter turnout.
Publications have been going out of business for years as corporations buy them up for profit, consolidate them and then lay off workers. The trend continues for publications big and small.
If you stand with union journalists in the face of illegal firings, sign our open letter.
