Crusading Against Silence:
High Impact Reporting on Invisible Victims
The 2011 Dart Awards recognize searing, in-depth investigations which exposed how important institutions – schools, universities and the military – betray the very people they are supposed to protect: victims of teenage bullying and campus rape, brain-injured soldiers and families left behind by war. Please join us in celebrating the winners and engaging in a conversation on journalism that is both hard-hitting and humane.
