Immigrant Journalists Win Awards, Share Stories
The New School, Center for New York City Affairs
$185,000 | 2010-2011
Feet in Two Worlds, housed at The New School’s Center for New York City Affairs, helps immigrant journalists cover elections, housing, education, and other issues—while exploring some aspect of immigration. It amplifies voices, launches careers, and shares stories with local and global audiences.
Fellows, who participate in media workshops and networking events, have produced stories for the New York Times, National Public Radio, and others. Since The Trust’s funding started in 2010, more than a dozen journalists with the project have won Ippie Awards for reporting excellence.
