Solidarity Reporting can Help the Cause of Public Safety for Marginalized Communities
Anita Varma, assistant director for journalism & media ethics and social sector ethics, published on The Objective.
"With solidarity news values, ongoing social issues – not just novel or surprising individual events — become newsworthy. In fact, the lack of surprise around ongoing social injustices makes them all the more newsworthy. Community organizers and people affected by an issue have their voices prioritized with these alternative values, rather than those of elites and celebrities."
