Journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones Calls Out Inequities Policy Makers Want Us To Ignore

This year marks the 50th year The Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law has been fighting poverty. 

An important part of that fight is highlighting- and challenging- the policies that create and grow the number of people living with less access to resources. 

Nikole Hannah-Jones’ reporting targets these policies, especially inequity in housing and education. Listeners may know Hannah-Jones from her 2015 This American Life story “The Problem We All Live With” about desegregation in schools. 

Hannah-Jones joins Morning Shift before her session at The Shriver Center’s Future of Justice Summit, where she talks about the role of journalism in advancing policy.
