Meredith Hoffman

Meredith Hoffman is an American freelance journalist whose reporting focuses on immigration and multimedia storytelling. Hoffman is a regular contributor for VICE and has also written for the New York Times, Slate, Tablet Magazine, and World Policy Journal. The IWMF has funded Hoffman’s collaboration with Sarah Kuck, a filmmaker and journalist whose reporting focuses on ideas of culture and place, global mobility, and community. Hoffman and Kuck will be traveling to Honduras to shoot a documentary about women and children who have recently been deported after migrating to the U.S. to seek asylum. Their project will call attention to the ongoing refugee crisis facing tens of thousands of families who have recently fled gang violence and skyrocketing murder rates in the Northern Triangle and been met with detention and deportation by the U.S. government.
