Meet the 2023 NEFAI Fellows

The New England First Amendment Coalition is pleased to announce the incoming class of fellows for its 2023 New England First Amendment Institute.

Now in its 13th year, the Institute provides support and training for New England journalists and gives them the tools they need to become more accomplished investigative reporters, well-versed in the freedom of information laws that govern today’s difficult reporting landscape.

The Institute — provided at no cost to those who attend — is Oct. 29-31 at Northeastern University in Boston and features many of the country’s elite reporters, editors, and media attorneys. About 300 journalists have attended the Institute since it began in 2011.

Keynote speakers this year are Eric Meyer, publisher and editor of the Marion County Record, the weekly newspaper in Kansas that recently made national headlines when local sheriffs raided its newsroom; Sisi Wei, Editor-in-Chief of The Markup, a nonprofit, investigative newsroom that challenges technology to serve the public good; and Brian Rosenthal, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter at The New York Times and the president of Investigative Reporters and Editors.
