The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) denounces the senseless acts of gun violence and racially motivated terrorism that occurred in Buffalo, New York, on May 14. We extend our prayers and thoughts to the families who have lost their loved ones, those who have suffered injuries, and to the journalists covering this traumatic incident. We especially extend our arms to the Black journalists who once again must report on a story of horrific racial violence while grasping the fact that it could have easily been them or a loved one who lost their lives that day. We encourage news managers to ensure the proper resources are in place to help Black journalists cope with such trauma and encourage our members reporting this story to take care of their mental health. Speak up and seek help if the stories you are assigned to are affecting your well-being.

The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) joined the NewsGuild-CWA and a coalition of more than 50 other U.S. journalism groups in calling for the Pulitzer Prizes to require transparency in diversity reporting in order for news organizations to be eligible to receive awards. The call for change stems from an April 12 report from Harvard's Nieman Lab that revealed only 303 print and online news organizations out of 2,500 participated in the News Leaders Association (NLA) annual diversity survey.
