2017 • 1 year • Criminal Justice

The Poynter Institute (Poynter) is an educational institution and research center that offers professional development opportunities for reporters and convenes events that address critical issues concerning the state of journalism. This award enables Poynter to design and convene a series of regional workshops for reporters from local and national outlets, aimed at providing them with the practical skills, technical assistance, and access to sources they need in order to report effectively on local criminal justice systems and jail overuse. Poynter is also creating an on-line training course based on the regional workshops, and making it available via its “News University” platform. By giving reporters the tools, resources, and capacity to produce in-depth and nuanced news stories on their local criminal justice systems, the project serves to increase public awareness of the problem of jail misuse and overuse, stimulate interest in and demand for solutions, and contribute to momentum for change.
