Hillman Foundation Awards May 6 in NYC

April 23, 2014
By Stephanie West

New York, NY – The Sidney Hillman Foundation has announced the winners of the 2014 Hillman Prizes in Journalism. The award is presented to those whose work identifies important social and economic issues and helps bring about change for the better.

The Hillman Foundation will present its distinguished annual journalism prizes, at a reception on May 6, 2014 at The Times Center in Manhattan, 242 West 43rd Street beginning 6PM.

This year, the Hillman Foundation recognized stories about for-profit prisons, the sometimes-deadly and largely unregulated U.S. daycare system, the medicine and politics of marijuana, and ocean acidification, the “lesser-known twin” of climate change. The Foundation also honored a pioneering progressive blogger and a book that redefines our understanding of the New Deal.

In addition to the Hillman Prizes, the Foundation is announcing the winner of the Sol Stetin Award for Labor History. The Stetin Award goes to an exemplary labor history scholar each year.
