The Chronicle of Social Change Wins Prestigious Price Child Welfare Journalism Award
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Chronicle of Social Change was honored with the 2017-2018 Price Child Health and Welfare Journalism Award on October 26 in recognition for its coverage of children’s issues in California.
Since 1992, the Price Child Health and Welfare Journalism Awards have been given out to acknowledge excellence in journalism, “and specifically to recognize significant stories, series, or bodies of work that advance the understanding of, and enhance public discourse on, child health and well-being issues.”
This year, The Chronicle of Social Change and the Center for Investigative Reporting were named as the two winners of the award. The annual award is presented by the Children’s Advocacy Institute of the University of San Diego School of Law.
The Chronicle was recognized for its “outstanding and compelling contributions it makes daily to the public’s understanding of the plight of children and youth in foster care, as well as other vulnerable populations.”
“Recognition from the legal advocates who are working to advance the health and well-being of children means a lot to us at The Chronicle,” said Jeremy Loudenback, senior editor of The Chronicle of Social Change. “We strive to provide a balanced look at the systems that make critical decisions about our state’s most vulnerable children and families, including those in the foster care system.”
The Chronicle of Social Change is a national news outlet that covers issues affecting vulnerable children, youth and their families. It is published by the Los Angeles- based nonprofit journalism organization Fostering Media Connections. Sign up for our newsletter or it on Facebook and Twitter.
The Children’s Advocacy Institute at the University of San Diego School of Law works to improve the health, safety, and well-being of children, especially those living in, at risk of entering, or preparing to transition out of foster care. In addition to its academic component, CAI engages in regulatory and legislative advocacy, impact litigation and public education in order to ensure that children’s interests are represented effectively whenever and wherever government makes policy and budget decisions that will impact them.
