Despite physical and digital violence, polarization and verbal attacks by people in power that Mexican journalists currently face, 2023 Cabot Prize award winner Alejandra Xanic told LJR not to give in to fear. Rather, she advised evaluating risks and carrying out collaborations to continue doing investigative journalism.
Peruvian-American journalist Daniel Alarcón will receive the Maria Moors Cabot Award from Columbia University on Oct. 11. Alarcón spoke with LJR about the significance of this award, the success of the podcast Radio Ambulante, advice for younger journalists, and about his personal and family projects.
The efforts of the collaborative journalism initiative "The Cartel Project" to continue the unfinished work of the Mexican journalist Regina Martínez - murdered in 2012 - was recognized with a Special Citation at this year's Maria Moors Cabot Prize.
