The Executive Board unanimously voted on November 21, 2020, to create a Black Lives Matter Committee. Demetria Wambia and AJ Springer will co-chair. The committee will actively seek to increase diversity within the Union (including leadership positions) and within industries that have historically not employed or retained a significant amount of Black talent, such as book publishing and major city newspapers. The committee will also provide relevant, engaging programming and initiatives that directly address issues facing Black creatives.
If you are interested in joining the committee (which will begin meeting in 2021), email Demetria at email@example.com or AJ at firstname.lastname@example.org. NWU
