Ever since I left the IWMF's HEFAT training, I haven't been able to stop thinking about how much I wish I'd learned this information sooner AND how critical it is to find a way to make this accessible to all journalists— especially women and nonbinary folks— as soon as possible. It's imperative to our work and safety.

The Kim Wall grant opened doors in my career that I never thought would open for me. The grant gave me an opportunity to report in-depth on a story that I always wanted. I take pride in the opportunity that the Kim Wall Memorial Fund gave me and since I have received funding and skills opportunities that have enhanced my career to another level. Thank you, IWMF.
