Journalism Department’s Investigative Series Publishes on BINJ, Politico

Paul Mihailidis

Part 1 of the Journalism Department’s investigative series on guns in Massachusetts published this week on The Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism (BINJ) website and was picked up by Politico. The series comes to fruition as the result of an Online News Association (ONA) grant Emerson College received to produce community-engaged journalism regarding Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.

Emerson’s Associate Journalism Professor Paul Mihailidis (pictured above) drove the grant application process and is the Graduate Program Director in Media Design.

This story is part of a collaboration on weapons use and procurement in Massachusetts by the Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism, Emerson College’s Department of Journalism, MuckRock, and the Engagement Lab.
