Changing Racial Narratives in Ohio Media

Your Voice Ohio is a collaborative effort of over 50 news organizations across the state. This group is launching a new initiative — Race & Representation in Reporting, that aims to help journalists tell more accurate and complete stories about and with communities often overlooked or harmed by traditional media — and to invite you to participate!

As we work to develop this initiative, we want to ensure community voices and solutions are amplified and centered throughout the process. So, we’re hosting listening sessions across the state and asking folks to fill out this survey on media representation. It would be great if you would consider some of these opportunities to get involved or share with your members:

Insight from the sessions and survey will inform the development of a two-day workshop training for media professionals across the state, and new approaches to reporting and language by Ohio journalists.

If you have any questions or would like support in hosting your own dialogue please don’t hesitate to email Katherine Sims-Delgado at katherine@yourvoiceohio.org.
