Reynolds Week: Fellows pay tribute to #JeSuisCharlie

by January 8, 2015

Je Suis CharlieThe horrific attacks on journalists at the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo have generated sympathy around the world. On Wednesday, Reynolds Week fellows participated in the tribute at the Cronkite School at Arizona State University.

Standing before a mural of the first amendment, the fellows held up placards reading, “Je Suis Charlie” (I Am Charlie) — the hashtag that has become a universal sentiment.

Several fellows posted group and individual photos on Twitter.
