Life without journalism31/07/2020
The Journalists’ Charity is renewing its drive to recognise and celebrate the role of journalism as Covid-19 continues to seriously impact life across the UK.
Since the beginning of lockdown, journalists have played a vital role in delivering information to audiences, as well as providing insight and scrutiny at a time of unprecedented national importance.
The Journalists’ Charity’s annual general meeting will be held on Wednesday 19th August at 12:30pm by video conference.
The meeting will include reports on 2019 from the charity’s chair, and treasurer, as well as the re-election of some council members. It will also include a proposal to amend several bye laws, adapted mainly as a response to the coronavirus outbreak.
