Over the past several years at Long Island Wins, we’ve been proud to feature the work of several top-tier journalists who have served as LIW reporting fellows.
Our current fellow, Eliana López—who is also the editor of the Spanish-language weekly newspaper Noticia—has enriched our coverage of immigrant culture with articles about everything from the Salvadoran-American Day Festival to the use of arts for economic revitalization. In August, she produced a riveting story and audio slideshow about a Latino marine who converted to Islam while serving in Iraq, a piece that was prominently featured on The Huffington Post.
In 2012, Long Island Wins will offer a three-month, $1,250 reporting fellowship to a first- or second-generation immigrant journalist interested in covering LGBT immigration issues. Local media doesn’t give nearly enough attention to the unique challenges faced by LGBT immigrants, and we hope to change that with this fellowship.
But we need your help to keep strengthening our fellowship program.
Give $50, $100, $250, or $500 during our annual giving campaign, and you can help make the next fellowship a reality.
Or give $1250 and
that the next fellowship is a reality.
Please remember to make your check payable to our “host” non-profit, “Drum Major Institute for Long Island Wins.”
