EHRP-Supported Article Nominated for National Magazine Award

For the second time in four years, the Economic Hardship Reporting Project (EHRP) has supported and co-published work that is among the finalists for a National Magazine Award, this time as part of a package from Oxford American magazine.

The 2018 nomination in the General Excellence in the Literature, Science and Politics category recognizes Oxford American’s work across three of the magazine’s 2017 issues. Highlights include a nearly 12,000-word EHRP-supported feature, “The Socialist Experiment,” by Katie Gilbert. Gilbert’s article profiles Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba of Jackson, Miss., and his vision for a progressive local government.

In 2014 the EHRP-supported multimedia work “The Last Clinic,” published by The Atavist, was nominated in the video category. Read more here.

Save An Endangered Species: Journalists

The Economic Hardship Reporting Project supports independent journalists so they can create gripping stories which often counter the typical disparaging narratives about inequality. This high-quality journalism is then co-published with mainstream media outlets mobilizing readers to address systemic economic hardship.
