Fusion has published six in the past year.

Our work impacts people's lives. To name a few examples:
- Readers boycotted plasma donation centers that exploit low-income people’s bodies and damage them medically after an EHRP first person account of these places.
- An Oklahoma lawmaker apologized about his characterization of Native American alcoholism after one of our pieces on that topic was published.
- Amazon tried (unsuccessfully!) to silence an EHRP critique of its warehouse working conditions.
- An EHRP-commissioned story about Los Angeles' Skid Row was cited by homeless activists as influencing city officials to soften a law preventing homeless people from carrying anything larger than a backpack.
- An EHRP contributor's piece in Jezebel about a nonprofit's misguided attempts to cultivate more resilience in low-income communities prompted a rethinking of the community engagement strategy for a collaboration between AFL-CIO and the United Way and how they use the term “resilience” with the poor.
- Another contributor's piece in The Nation about a movement to nest churches within public schools in Florida led to the removal of an embedded church-in-a-school. It has also served as a rallying cry for separation of church and state activists.
