Linda Jue directs New Voices in Independent Journalism (NVIJ), a national journalism initiative aimed at mentoring a diverse pool of independent journalists who can bring the emerging voices and perspectives of the new majority, as well as the next generation of youth, to investigative/enterprise reporting on social justice issues.
