Izzy Award Honors In These Times, Mohammed El-Kurd, Lynzy Billing, Trina Reynolds-Tyler, Sarah Conway

HeadlineApr 02, 2024

The 2024 Izzy Award for “outstanding achievement in independent media” will be shared by In These Times and journalists Mohammed El-Kurd, Lynzy Billing, Trina Reynolds-Tyler and Sarah Conway. The award this year recognizes reporting by In These Times on worker-centered economic justice stories. Mohammed El-Kurd is The Nation’s first-ever Palestine correspondent and wrote, among many things, “The Right to Speak for Ourselves.” Lynzy Billing chronicled the American military’s environmental devastation in Afghanistan for Inside Climate News. Trina Reynolds-Tyler and Sarah Conway produced the seven-part series “Missing in Chicago,” which exposed police malpractice in the handling of missing persons cases, disproportionately affecting Black women and girls.

And Democracy Now! is receiving special recognition for our coverage of the ongoing war on Gaza. The Izzy Award is named for the dissident journalist I. F. “Izzy” Stone and is presented by the Park Center for Independent Media at Ithaca College.
