Help WFAE Build A Race And Equity Team
Systemic racism coupled with enduring inequity continue to plague our community and our country. Economic mobility, affordable housing, a living wage, health care, equitable education, safety, justice and more remain out of reach for many people of color.
Furthermore, the much-cited 2014 Chetty study revealed an alarming truth: A person born in poverty in Charlotte will likely die in poverty here.
WFAE is building a Race and Equity Team to transform the way we serve our community by increasing solutions-driven, data-rich, culturally competent reporting that considers how issues are shaped by race and inequality.
In June 2021, a diverse team of multi-platform journalists, in partnership with Report For America, was formed to help WFAE fulfill our public service mission by meeting this moment in history to help lead communities across greater Charlotte in addressing racial injustice.
