APM Reports Doc "Shadow Class" Wins Eddy Award

D2550d 20170905 daca

Congratulations to our APM Reports colleagues Sasha Aslanian, Catherine Winter, Emily Hanford and Stephen Smith! The APM Reports documentary "Shadow Class" was awarded the Edwin Gould Foundation's "Eddy" prize last Thursday at the national Education Writers Association seminar.

About Shadow Class:
President Trump is ending a program that allowed some young, undocumented immigrants to stay and work in the United States. For some, that may mean the end of a dream of going to college. APM Reports tells the stories of young immigrants fighting for a piece of the American Dream and examines the historical events that brought us to this moment.
