Journalists of Color
on slackYou’ve found us! We are a community of Journalists of Color aka JOCs, and this website is for you – the public – to peruse, find out what we’re all about and maybe even join us. We are dedicated to growing and expanding this community, and its conversations and opportunities. We’ve already branched out from Slack to a couple of meetups on the East and West coasts. So stay tuned because we’re just getting started.We founded this group to put Journalists of Color in the same "room" (you know, so you’re not the only one.) And having a Slack team allows us to branch out and create infinite rooms to discuss a variety of topics, collaborate on projects or chat/scheme/vent privately via direct messages or private groups. Allies: While we appreciate your support, this space is for us. Check out our resources tab for more ways to encourage diversity.Chat
