Student journalists provide a unique, essential perspective when they tell stories. They understand and can identify issues that their older colleagues might miss. They speak their readers’ language and provide a trusted forum for young voices to share their concerns and have their questions answered.
Often these student journalists are truly on the front lines, covering challenging but vital stories, like racist incidents on campus, sexual misconduct, LGBTQIA+ discrimination, lack of accessible resources for disabled students and other injustices.
In order to continue telling the vital stories in their communities and producing impactful pieces of bold journalism, young journalists need student press freedom now more than ever.
