Invites you to a luncheon honoring the 2015 Selden Ring Award Recipients
Audra Burch and Carol Marbin The Miami Herald, “Innocents Lost”
Miami Herald reporters Carol Marbin Miller and Audra D.S. Burch won USC Annenberg’s 2015 Selden Ring Award for Investigative Reporting, for their examination of six years of child deaths in Florida – a project that immediately resulted in the most sweeping overhaul of child welfare laws in the state’s history.
“Innocents Lost” chronicled the deaths of 477 children whose families had been known by Florida child welfare authorities. The project drew on records
from the state Department of Children and Families, other state agencies and law enforcement – as well as interviews with police, prosecutors, teachers, doctors, relatives, family friends, child welfare administrators, children’s advocates, social workers, judges and others. The Herald filed three lawsuits, two of them successful, in their pursuit of the records.
