Biden calls for a fresh start and a united front: "This is our historic moment of crisis and challenge, and unity is the path forward. We must meet this moment as the *United* states of America."

So looking forward to this! We're 10 minutes away from @19thnews ' first event of 2021 — @emarvelous  interviews the women leading comms for the Biden/Harris White House: @KBeds , @K_JeanPierre , @jrpsaki  and @SymoneDSanders . Join us here:

Biden appoints Dr. Rachel Levine as assistant secretary of health, a historic first for transgender people via @19thnews 

“...details in the new allegations against three U.S. military veterans offer a disturbing look at what they allegedly said to one another before, during and after the attack — statements that indicate a degree of preparation and determination...”

A new president, and our first woman president, officially inaugurated. "This is America's day. This is democracy's day."

How are you feeling this #InaugurationDay ? @19thnews  readers are marking this transition with mixed emotions. Worry. Expectation. Hope. Relief. Tell us what this day means to you by tweeting #19thVoices  via @SereenaHender 

The 🐦🦜🐥s in my hood think that spring is here. Let's pray it stays here!


Wow. NYT publishes blistering testimony in war crimes case against Navy SEALS chief protected by Trump. “The guy is freaking evil.” “The guy was toxic.” “You could tell he was perfectly O.K. with killing anybody that was moving.”

This is Texas exceptionalism at its most heartbreaking. Today, we surpassed 3,000 COVID deaths, an increase of 1k in just 24 days. Counties are now calling in mobile morgues.

Here's what 3.3M unemployment claims looks like on the front page of tomorrow's NYT.

🚨 JOURNALISM JOB ALERT 🚨 @19thnews  is hiring four new editorial positions, including: — data visuals reporter — digital producer — breaking news editor — breaking news reporter

“In my time as an officer, we have never failed so miserably than we did on that day,” the officer said. “We were failed by our management...We were put in a situation to fail. It’s like trying to climb Mount Everest and they give you house slippers.”

The backstory on our royal #19thRepresents  interview: “The Duchess learned about The 19th*…and reached out to us. She told us that our vision for The 19th*—building a truly diverse and representative newsroom that covers women with nuance—spoke to her.”

Meet LaTosha Brown, the woman working to ensure Black voters turn out for #GASen  runoffs — but also that they are getting fed and have access to covid testing, whether they end up casting a ballot or not via @19thnews 

GM! I wrote a thing. I hope you will read. The tl;dr: we can't build credible relationships with diverse audiences if we decry racism and injustice in the world, but refuse to address it in our own newsrooms. It begins with us, it begins with me:

Believe it or not, @19thnews  is hiring (again!). We're looking for an audience director to lead 3-person team & chart our growth/engagement strategy. We're off to a roaring start and looking for someone to come in and seize the day! Deadline is Oct. 5.

The Duchess, talking about importance of representation: "You think about women who are in marginalized communities…how special that with The 19th you don't simply have reporters in these large cities, but you have representation throughout the country."
