All of us are still absorbing the full implications of this week’s election. We’re wondering what will happen on a wide range of issues we care deeply about.
Our Ken Armstrong, who won a Pulitzer Prize this year for his story of a rape investigation gone terribly wrong, reflected on his 20 years writing about these issues in an email to the newsroom: “Our reporting on criminal justice can make a difference, no matter the time or mood or place. There’s never a straight line with our work. And there’s never one ideal moment to be seized. We just need to keep reporting, mindful of that arc bending towards justice.”
At The Marshall Project, we’re ready for the long haul on criminal justice. We’ll continue to investigate the profound problems inherent in mass incarceration, race and policing, juvenile justice, immigration, the death penalty, and more. We’ll publish those investigations to the widest possible audience to help push for change.
Good public policy must be based on facts. Institutions that gather those facts in a careful and non-partisan manner need public support more than ever. We hope you’ll stand with us in the months and years to come.
