Journalism Accelerator: Support for minority entrepreneurs for greater diversity in media

Journalism Accelerator logo: "JA" white on green background
Thank you, Journalism Accelerator, for highlighting my comment about media portrayals of the disability community on a recent JA blog post.

On Dec. 14, JA writer Emily Harris posted an interview with Doug Mitchell, co-director of the Unity New U Entrepreneur Fellowship program. The orgaization helps secure funding for minority journalists to want to start their own company. In so doing, it contributes to greater diversity in the media.

I advocated inclusion of the disability community among efforts to promote greater representation among minority journalists. JA posted a link to my comment on Twitter.
