On Aug. 16, 2018, my "House of Burgess" column, "We Are Not the Enemy," was published in NUVO solidarity along with more than 300 other newspapers in defense of the free press.
The #FreePress initiative originated with Marjorie Pritchard, deputy managing editor of the Boston Globe’s opinion page.
On Aug. 27, 2018, Shailee Shah, community relations co-op at Boston Globe Media, contacted NUVO.
“A sincere thanks for participating in the #FreePress project. The Boston Globe is currently in the process of turning the editorials written last week into a book or magazine,” she wrote. “We'd like to include your editorial in the compilation and need a few things from you in order to do that. We are also updating the Globe's website to include more editorials."
In response, I provided permission to reprint the column, the headline, a pull quote, a link to the online story or a PDF if it appeared only in print, the publication's Twitter handle, and the mailing address of the publication.
