This week, I joined the Sidney Hillman Foundation as the lead blogger for the Hillman Blog. The Hillman Foundation was founded to honor Sidney Hillman the late founder and president of the Amalgamated Clothing Workers Union.
The foundation’s mission is to promote excellence in journalism. The foundation is best known for its annual Hillman Awards. Previous honorees include Edward R. Murrow, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, I. F. Stone, Bob Woodward, and Carl Bernstein. The foundation also gives a monthly Sidney Award for outstanding journalistic achievement in the preceding month.
The relaunch is still in progress, so stay tuned. Exciting changes are afoot for the Hillman Blog. The new blog will be a hub of media criticism, labor news, and in-depth coverage of our monthly and yearly award winners.
I’ll continue blogging at Big Think as well.
