Six journalists from diverse backgrounds have been selected to take part in The San Diego Union-Tribune’s Social Justice Reporting Project, a civic engagement program to help amplify the unheard voices in San Diego on the topic of social justice.


Through photography, videography and modern journalism, we are committed to documenting stories that amplify voices of racial and social justice movements in San Diego and Tijuana. By increasing the visibility of personal experiences not otherwise seen in local media, we hope to educate viewers in a way that catalyzes support for these communities.
