A Letter From the Editor

To all members, readers and supporters:

The Huntington News condemns the recent acts of racism, injustice and police brutality, as well their longstanding history in our country. We stand in solidarity alongside the Black community at The News, Northeastern University, the Greater Boston area and nationwide. George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade and countless other victims will not have died in vain.

We aim to be a platform that not only communicates vital information and reports the truth, but highlights these systemic issues in our society. For too long, discrimination and oppression have damaged the fabric of our society and culture, and The News will not remain passive or silent. We are committed to raising the voices of those who need to be heard, even if they can only utter three words: “I can’t breathe.”

As journalists, it is our responsibility to be vocal, active and empathetic — to be better. We will dedicate ourselves to diversifying our coverage and newsroom and be stronger advocates for the people. We understand that this is not a change that happens overnight, but it is a change that is necessary. We will constantly educate ourselves about the prejudice, inequity and violence that has plagued our nation, and we will continue to report these acts honestly and justly.

That is our promise as an organization, as journalists and most importantly, as allies of the Black community.
