Student journalists are on the frontlines of protests sparked by the killing of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis on May 25. Through their coverage, students are keeping their communities informed on protests, curfews and local government response, despite attacks from police and risk of exposure to COVID-19.
In order to recognize and express our appreciation for student journalists and their continued hard work, the Student Press Law Center has compiled a list featuring protest coverage from around the country.
