We're excited to announce that Jennifer Gonnerman, staff writer for The New Yorker, and author of the 2014 story about Kaleif Browder, "Before the Law" -- a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize -- will be on hand at our 10th anniversary reception on July 20th to accept the inaugural "Story of Justice Media Award."

Again and again, Ms. Gonnerman has brought to light the stories of those treated unfairly or inhumanely, and her unflinching commitment to exposing the human tragedy of youth lost in uncaring and and damaging systems makes her a perfect exemplar of the kind of balanced and compassionate reporting we'd like to see more often. 

Ms. Gonnerman, a National Book Award finalist, has also won a Sidney Award from the Hillman Foundation, the Livingston Award for Young Journalists, the Meyer Berger Award from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, and eight Front Page Awards from the Newswomen's Club of New York.

Join Us for the Award Ceremony at our 10th Anniversary Reception

Please join us at our reception in Washington D.C. on Monday, July 20th, from 5:30 - 7:30 pm. We will celebrate Ms. Gonnerman's work and NJJN's 10 years of advancing reform -- it'll be an inspiring, fun event.
