PETITION TO END NEW BEDFORD GUIDE

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


We the people of the New Bedford area demand that all sponsors and political figures immediately end all advertising relationships with the New Bedford Guide. The New Bedford Guide has a long problematic history of racial bias, xenophobia, islamophobia, and ignorance in their post.

 


NBG has also used their platform to share community member’s personal information in efforts to defame and in defense of NBG’s stance on the justification of unlawful arrest and the murders by law enforcement.

 


The NBG ultimately uses “Click Bait” to generate traffic and does not serve the best interest of the people of New Bedford. They are counterproductive to our communities' search for harmony and racial justice. NBG’’s biased reporting has created significant harm to the African, Black, Cape Verdean, Puerto Rican, Dominican, Haitian, Indigenous, Wampanoag, Nipmuc, Guatemalan, El Salvadorian, Caribbean, Islamic, and Immigrant communities in New Bedford.

 


They have shown they are not in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and Black, Indigenous, and People of Color in New Bedford. The New Bedford Guide also spreads false information to the public and they are increasing the racial divide in New Bedford.
