Hello To All:
You may be wondering, Did the Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism intentionally wait for the election to be over to email us?
The answer is simple: Yes, we did.
With much love and respect to partisan politics, we take a lot of pride in always looking past the horse race. With another election in our rearview, now is the time to dig deep on innumerable issues, and our team is ready for action.
If you’re in the Boston area this Thursday, please stop by our holiday engagement party at the Good Life in Downtown Crossing. There will be interactive activities, reporters to mingle with, and of course, great food and beer. We hope to see you there!
Chris Faraone, Editorial Director
P.S. If you can’t make it on Thursday but would still like to support our efforts, you can make a one-time donation or become a Reporter Supporter in just a few seconds.
BINJ Party Tomorrow …
Featured in new Chomsky film …
We won’t make too big a deal out of this other than to thank Noam Chomsky’s whole team as well as Suren Moodliar of encuentro 5 and Mass Peace Action for inviting us to be part of the nonprofit fair that preceded the 2016 taping of Internationalism or Extinction, which was filmed at the Old South Church and hosted by the great Wallace Shawn. You can watch the whole documentary here, including the part at the beginning where we got to say a few words about BINJ.
Major shoutout to regular BINJ contributor Sarah Betancourt for her article, The Case for Katja Novin, subtitled, Will the healthcare system save this patient’s life, or end it? The article takes a deep look at Katja’s serious medical complications and struggles with the healthcare system. While we’re always hesitant to claim impact or victory, especially in such a sensitive situation, we are happy to report that Sarah’s article moved Katja’s healthcare providers and coordinators to act swiftly in her interest, and also helped the subject connect with experts to assist with her case. We will keep you posted on any further progress, and we wish our best to Katja and her family.
