Prism Editor-in-Chief Ashton Lattimore on How Her Newsroom Sees the World Differently

On this episode, Mark talked to Ashton Lattimore, editor-in-chief of Prism, whose editorial goal is to center the people, places, and issues currently underreported by national media and treat Black, Indigenous, People of Color, women, the LGBTQ+ community and other invisibilized groups as experts on their lived experiences, resilience, and fight for justice. 


Ashton talked about what it was like to try to write an editorial

the week of the presidential election, provided examples of the kinds of

stories that Prism covers in the areas of immigration, politics, and racial justice. She also explained how the site covers culture and celebrates triumph. 


Lastly, Ashton picked 2 journalism organizations to salute and

offered advice to people who venture back and forth between journalism and other careers, as she did.
