NewsGuild of New York's 2022 Spring Membership Meeting!
We’re thrilled to invite Guild members across our local to our Spring Membership Meeting on Wednesday, May 18, 2022 at 6:30 PM EST. Since our last meeting in September, we’ve celebrated some historic wins, welcomed an unprecedented amount of members into our union, and consistently led the way in showing what a fighting, democratic union can do during a time of turmoil and uncertainty. RSVP here!
This year, we’re honored to have award-winning science journalist and NY Guild member Ed Yong join us as our Keynote Speaker, His commitment to incisive and inclusive reporting presents an opportunity for us to reflect—as a fast-growing union of editorial and media workers—on the stakes of journalism at this time, the importance of storytelling, and the undeniable power of a collective network of care. For his coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic, he won the Pulitzer Prize in explanatory journalism, the George Polk Award for science reporting, as well as the Victor Cohn Prize for medical science reporting, among other honors.
The past year has seen hundreds of workers across industries standing up to such systemic failures, highlighting the importance of radical solidarity and strong organizing to navigate difficult times. Our union has been at the forefront of demanding employers address some of the most critical issues around workplace safety and COVID policies. In many instances it has been, and remains, a tough fight.
Let’s come together to reflect on these challenges, share what we’ve done and discuss how we plan to keep building and sustain our power. It’s a critical time for workers everywhere.
