  1. I think it’s unnecessary to indicate that the letter has received national news coverage. That line sounds promotional and out of place given the content of the story. Thank you.

    1. Hi, Joshua,
      Thank you for writing and I appreciate the point you make.
      I mentioned the media attention mostly as a way to link to the thoughtful interviews Dean Onwuachi-Willig did with both those outlets.
