From: [Your Name]

​I support members of the Newspaper Guild of Detroit at the Detroit News, Free Press and Observer & Eccentric. I support their fight for quality, local journalism and investment in journalists.

I ask Gannett to commit to investing in local journalism through support of local journalists. The people covering critical stories and holding the powerful accountable in our communities deserve fair wages, support and dignity while they do their critical work.

Please come to the table with a fair contract for your workers and demonstrate your true commitment to quality journalism.
