The Museum of Political Corruption will be honoring Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey with this year's Nellie Bly Award November 29 at the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Albany.

The two New York Times journalists won the Pulitzer Prize this year in the public service category, along with Ronan Farrow, for "impactful journalism that exposed powerful and wealthy sexual predators, including allegations against one of Hollywood's most influential producers, bringing them to account for long-suppressed allegations of coercion, brutality and victim silencing, thus spurring a worldwide reckoning about sexual abuse of women."

Kantor and Twohey will appear at the event via Skype and answer questions from the audience.

The evening will also include a roundtable discussion about the #MeToo movement. The lists of panelists is below.

The event is Thursday, November 29 starting at 6 pm at the the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Albany (405 Washington Ave). There will be a reception with light fare. Tickets are $40 / $15 for students (or $5 for students without the reception) and available online (see the link above).

Very nice redesigns. I hope that area becomes more of a neighborhood rather than what it currently is - still an expressway that happens to have hotels and apartments along it. I'd love to see wide sidewalks and protected bike lanes from Crossgates all the way to Manning.
