On Tuesday, November 10th, 2020, join us for a national day of activism and education to address the need for diversity, equity and inclusion in public media.
There are many ways to participate:
Hold a white caucus at your organization to have a brave and honest conversation about race, and perhaps hold some of your fellow White co-workers accountable.
Meet one-on-one with your manager to share your concerns about the lack of diversity at your organization, and elevate concerns you’ve heard about this from people of color co-workers.
In collaboration with co-workers of color, who have willingly volunteered their time, energy, and knowledge, cover DEI issues in public media in your programming.
Donate or volunteer with a local service organization supporting communities of color, especially seniors and youth of color.
Attend our webinar (more info TBA).
Post your support on social media with #PublicAF
Participate in our moment of silence (more info TBA).
If you cannot do these things, and feel that calling out sick is the only way you can show support, then use your day out sick to educate yourself about systemic issues of racism in media and society.
Individuals who sign up will be kept anonymous.
