MLK50: Justice Through Journalism is looking for contributors to work with us. And we want a pool that looks like Memphis, including women, African-Americans, immigrants, LGBT folks, people living with a disability and people who are not, workers, entrepreneurs and community thought leaders.

Since our start in April 2017, the majority of MLK50’s paid contributors have been women, and a majority are people of color.

Our leadership team is all women of color: editor and publisher Wendi C. Thomas, managing editor Deborah Douglas and senior editor Peggy McKenzie are African-American and visuals director, Andrea Morales, is Latina.

Our focus is poverty, power and public policy. MLK50 is committed to practicing economic justice. We pay all contributors fairly and promptly.

Please fill out this form to add yourself to our pool of potential freelancers. No emails, please.
