Given the current state of news, the National Press Photographers Association is asking visual journalists across disciplines to rally together and stand because now more than ever, truth needs an ally.
The NPPA believes in creating a community built on advocacy and action. Over the last three years some of the top industry leaders have come together to rethink the inner workings of how we hold society accountable through visual journalism. From legal counsel to training to gear insurance to physical community, we've created a plan we're proud of, that we truly believe serves as a compass in the storm. It's a place where members of our community can feel empowered to continue to do the important work of holding society accountable while knowing that they have a support system surrounding them.
Throughout the week, NPPA will be showcasing some of the things that we've been doing in the shadows that we're excited to share with the world. Check it out. Come back often. Renew your membership. Buy a t-shirt, tote bag, mug, leggings, what have you, and become an Ally for Truth, because we're not standing around anymore.
It's time to take action. To show your solidarity this week post some of your favorite photos of yourself or your colleagues working in the field using the hashtag #withnppa.
