Virtual Front Office

As we witness, and many of us participate in, struggles for racial justice and equality, the faculty and staff of the UWM Department of Journalism, Advertising, and Media Studies voice our strong support for the fundamental principle that Black lives matter. We all must stand against racism in all its forms and, in the JAMS Department, we are committed to doing so. We stand in support of the constitutional rights of protesters to peacefully protest against these injustices, while supporting the constitutional rights of journalists to safely and freely report on those efforts. As researchers and educators, we reaffirm our special responsibility for promoting fairness and equality of opportunity and we pledge to do more to create an inclusive community within our program.
