2019 Excellence in Poverty Journalism Awards
September 4, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pmFree
In St. Louis City, one in four people live in poverty; however, their stories are underreported and too often, not framed within a systemic context. As a result, the misperception of poverty as a personal failing continues to misshape public opinion and misguide public policy decisions. ArchCity Defenders is pleased to announce the third annual “Excellence in Poverty Journalism Awards,” designed to recognize and honor in-depth reporting on race, class, and poverty, and to inspire more coverage.
