Evident Change is proud to announce the finalists for the 2020 Media for a Just Society Awards. Each year, we recognize media from across the United States that further public understanding of Evident Change’s focus areas, including child welfare, juvenile justice, adult justice, and adult protection.
Many of these topics are covered regularly by the media, yet their treatment is often sensationalized and not representative of system issues the public should care about. The media we recognize look deeper, consider trends, and offer insight.
For many years, the Media for a Just Society Awards have been given in the categories of book, film, print/online journalism, radio, television/video, and youth media. This year we have added a new category for those who write and create other media while incarcerated.
We believe their unique perspectives are crucial to understanding and improving the nation’s social systems.
