Advancing women in digital media leadership

Why ‘Je Suis Charlie’

Last week, ONA released a statement on the terrorist attacks on Charlie Hebdo, emphasizing that “the only way to keep free speech alive is to stand up for it — and use it.” We also joined 39 other journalism organizations standing in solidarity with the Parisian satire magazine.
