prism on pause

At Prism, we’re committed to telling stories that reflect the lived experiences of people most impacted by injustice. The work is critical, and it can be heavy, especially as journalists of color. To make sure we’re able to tell the stories that matter and remain healthy and whole at the same time, we take rest seriously here. 

To that end, we’re taking the week off to rest, reflect, and do the things that bring us joy. During this pause, we won’t publish any new stories. Our break begins April 25, and we’ll be back on May 2. 

While we’re gone, we hope you too can find time and space in your own lives to breathe and relax.
