This Editor Turned What A Sheriff Said Was 'Not News' Into A Pulitzer-Winning Series

"I think most of the media in Texas, the big dogs, pretty much ignored it. Now they're paying a little more attention."

Help Us Tell the Stories of the New Yorkers We’ve Lost to COVID-19

Fewer than 5% of those killed by COVID-19 in NYC have had either a paid or journalist written obituary. Those that were publicized, were disproportionately young and from wealthier parts of the city.

Here's how you can help tell the stories of those that have gone unnoticed by anyone other than their families, coworkers, and friends.

Fewer than 5% of city residents felled by coronavirus have been publicly memorialized via obituaries or news accounts. Work with us to change that.
