“I think it's important that we speak out in support of anti-racism values. And obviously I'm now treading into complex political ground by saying that. But I think that there are ways in which we can acknowledge, support and recognize freedom of speech and diversity of viewpoints and at the same time say that we value diversity, equity and inclusion.” — Hari Osofsky, candidate for president of the University of Iowa, here
About: I was a newspaper reporter for 14 years, most recently at the Minneapolis Star Tribune. I explained why my family left Minneapolis here. Now we live just outside Chattanooga and I work on Scuffed News, a project that either succeeds by July or will have to be abandoned. This is my newsletter.
