***This blog post is part of a weekly series titled #SignalBoostSunday. This series will highlight organizations and social causes that are of importance and provide assistance to the Greater Atlanta area. ***
Normally, when I write a #SignalBoostSunday post, the organizations featured are organizations located in the Metro-Atlanta area. For this week’s theme, however, I thought it was a bit more important to highlight organizations that have extensive news literacy resources that are accessible by everyone regardless of location.
So this week’s installment of #SignalBoostSunday is a bit of a special edition. In light of Thursday’s tragedy at the Capital Gazette —a shooting that resulted in the deaths of five people, four of whom were journalists— I felt it was necessary to feature a few online resources that can help clarify the role of journalism and journalists in a healthy democracy.
