Toward Freedom welcomed Jacqueline Luqman onto the board of directors on March 17. Jacqueline brings a background in activism and in journalism, and describes herself as a "Pan-Africanist, anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist revolutionary." She recently told TF Editor Julie Varughese why she joined the board.
As we all struggle to adjust to the reality of life in Trump's America, we at Toward Freedom renew our commitment to exposing global injustice, discrimination, and corporate greed. We will continue to bring you reports on indigenous and popular movements and on successful grassroots efforts to fight for economic justice, democratic reform and human dignity, as TF has done since 1952.
Final words from Toward Freedom editor Julie Varughese, as she moves on.
Toward Freedom’s online panel discussion, “Breaking the Colonial Grip on African Journalism,” launched the Africa Reporting Fund. The fund is designed to enable Toward Freedom to publish more reports from and about Africa. The discussion took place on May 24—the day of Eritrea’s 32nd independence anniversary and one day before African Liberation Day—to hear from African journalists about how they best see to break the colonial grip on African journalism.
