The work we’ve published in 2016 would not have been possible without two significant groups: our interns and our donors. Our interns — graduate students from American University and other schools around the country — research and report through our partnerships with The Washington Post, FRONTLINE and other major media. We are proud to count Workshop alums among the staff at the Post, NBC News, Politico, McClatchy, the Huffington Post, the Houston Chronicle, WNYC, Colorado Public Radio and Mother Jones, among many others.

Patrick Madden of NPR member station WAMU 88.5 is the winner of the annual Daniel Schorr Journalism Prize, named for the respected NPR senior news analyst and veteran Washington journalist who died in 2010.

The radio documentary and written story showed how often the charge of “assaulting a police officer” was used in the District of Columbia, questioning its potential for overuse particularly with minority men.
