(BPRW) NABJ Denounces Anti-Asian Racism and Attacks

(Black PR Wire) The continuing attacks on people in the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities continue to be a disturbing trend. 

“The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) continues to stand with the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) in its concern about the attacks on these communities,” said NABJ President Dorothy Tucker.  

NABJ asks that our members and all journalists be sensitive to these events in their coverage and follow the guidelines as recommended by AAJA. Guidelines on covering the Asian American community can be found here and guidelines on covering the recent shootings can be found on the AAJA website here.

NABJ and other journalism groups join in denouncing the violence and urge law enforcement to be aggressive in helping bring an end to these tragedies. Our joint statement with AAJA and other groups can be found here.
