Join us at the James Aronson Awards for Social Justice Journalism to celebrate journalists who tell the truth.

Our keynote speaker and winner of the Aronson Career Achievement Award is Gary Younge. Whether writing in lucid prose about the deferred dream of Barack Obama, his own identity as a Black Briton in a predominantly white society, or the prevalence of guns and violence in American life, Gary Younge’s award-winning work has been probing, illuminating and insightful. For the past 12 years Gary has been reporting from the United States for The Guardian and The Nation.

Please join us as we celebrate the winners who will discuss their inspiration and the challenges of reporting these stories. More info
