America’s Oldest Weekly Wins Again

Several Nation writers take home new awards for fearless journalism.


The Nation is proud to announce the following honors:

Izzy Award 

This award, named after the legendary left-wing journalist I.F. Stone, is presented annually by Ithaca College’s Park Center for “outstanding achievement in 
independent media.” There were three Izzy recipients this year—and two are Nation writers. Seth Freed Wessler won for his articles on abuses at for-profit prisons, and senior contributing writer Ari Berman earned the accolade for his reporting on voter suppression.

Daniel Singer Millennium Prize

Awarded by the Daniel Singer Foundation, this prize honors journalism that exhibits the fiery and compassionate spirit that the late socialist writer (and Nation European correspondent) exemplified. Nation senior editor Sarah Leonard was honored for her article “My Generation’s Best Chance Is Socialism,” an excerpt from The Future We Want: Radical Ideas for a New Century, which she co-edited with Jacobin magazine founder Bhaskar Sunkara.

James Aronson Award

Nation columnist Gary Younge is the recipient of the 2017 James Aronson Outstanding Achievement Award for Social Justice Journalism. Administered by the Hunter College department of film and media studies, the Aronson Award honors reporting that exposes injustice, its underlying causes, and possible reforms.

We hope you enjoyed the story you just read, just one of the many incisive, deeply reported articles we publish daily. Now more than ever, we need fearless journalism that moves the needle on important issues, uncovers malfeasance and corruption, and uplifts voices and perspectives that often go unheard in mainstream media.

Donate right now and help us hold the powerful accountable, shine a light on issues that would otherwise be swept under the rug, and build a more just and equitable future.

For nearly 160 years, The Nation has stood for truth, justice, and moral clarity. As a reader-supported publication, we are not beholden to the whims of advertisers or a corporate owner. But it does take financial resources to report on stories that may take weeks or months to investigate, thoroughly edit and fact-check articles, and get our stories to readers like you.
