Since its inception 10 years ago, the mission of the Center for Sustainable Journalism and its New York bureau has always been to go to the frontlines where the issues of justice, inequity and abuses of power of young people are impacting people’s lives the most.
Before the slaughter at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, The New York Times produced a powerful graphic showing the millions of NRA dollars some individual, yes, individual, U.S. senators and members of Congress have received, juxtaposed with their prayers and condolences to the families of shooting victims. That kind of hypocrisy didn’t surprise. It’s what we, as a nation, have become.
Most of the time, it’s best to ignore outrageous statements.
After all, if you tried to respond to every outrageous statement this president makes, well, you would just be exhausted.
The publisher of the Juvenile Justice Information Exchange, the Center for Sustainable Journalism, has had a long and meaningful relationship with our host institution in Georgia, Kennesaw State University.
