We are thrilled to learn that Tibisay Zea has been given this year’s Rhode Island for Community & Justice Metcalf Media Award for Diversity in the Media for her reporting on “Aging in the Shadows,”
The Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism was founded to produce solid independent reporting across Massachusetts. In recent years, we have expanded that mandate to include helping rebuild local news from the ground up. And we pursue both linked missions in the public interest. Therefore, we absolutely depend on the public—readers like you—to donate the funds we need to keeping afflicting the comfortable and comforting the afflicted. So please dig deep and donate whatever you can, as often as you can. The democracy you save may be your own.
