Press Forward Q&A
In September, ONA joined six other journalism organizations in an open letter urging funders of the $500 million Press Forward initiative to prioritize equity, inclusion and transparency. The coalition includes ONA, AAJA, IJA, NABJ, NAHJ, Maynard Institute and OpenNews.
The letter earned coverage in Inside Philanthropy, The Chronicle of Philanthropy and other outlets, and has informed internal discussions among Press Forward funders and other journalism support groups. This Thursday, Nov. 17, 12 p.m. EST, Borealis Philanthropy’s Racial Equity in Journalism Fund will host a one-hour Q&A with representatives leading Press Forward to understand how the initiative will support BIPOC news publishers and communities.
