About Blurred Bylines

Blurred Bylines is an effort to bring to light some of those perspectives that deserve their place in the public conscience. Unfortunately, a 24-hour media culture doesn’t allow for revisiting and re-assessing. And this isn’t something that gets better on its own. We have to fight to bring to the surface new ideas and points of view. 

When the voices of entire communities, cultures and genders are rendered unimportant and ignored, lost in history and the present, it’s hard to not be angry. Our voices may just be one in millions of millions. But it’s when that same message gets said by millions of different people, that it starts to break through the cacophony.

Those perspectives have value and they should be shared. That progress deserves to be covered. And it’s up to us to ensure that happens. Keep reading about Blurred Bylines.
