Memorial to Fallen Journalists Approved for National Mall

From a Washington Post story by Justin Jouvenal headlined “National Mall site approved for memorial to fallen journalists”:

Federal officials have approved a site on the National Mall for the capital’s first memorial dedicated to journalists who have died while reporting the news and to the role of the free press in a democracy.

The Fallen Journalists Memorial will be located on a third-of-an-acre parcel in Southwest Washington between the National Museum of the American Indian and the Voice of America building. The location is bordered by Independence and Maryland avenues and Third Street SW.
