The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) selected a total of 70 journalists from the United States to report on everything from immigration to women’s health from 2011 to 2016 for the “Bringing Home the World Program: International Reporting Fellowship for Minority Journalists.” Thirteen journalists were selected for ICFJ’s “Social Justice Reporting for a Global America Program” in 2013 and 2014. Altogether over 174 stories have been published. This map depicts where the fellows traveled – and features their published work.
