The longtime community media group wants charges dropped against a reporter covering the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Award-winning journalist and NFCB board member Jenni Monet was arrested Feb. 1, held on a bus, then a cage and strip-searched after her arrest while covering events at Standing Rock, which has been at the center of a national debate over the proposed Dakota Access Pipeline. She faces a number of charges. Yes Magazine shares details.
Monet has covered Dakota Access Pipeline protests for months. She has been featured in a variety of outlets.
In its letter (pdf), NFCB asks that the First Amendment be honored and charges against Monet be dropped immediately.
