Pulitzer on the Road is coming to the Overture Center tomorrow, Tuesday, March 28th at 7pm. The panel discussion will focus on the role of local journalism to keep residents and workers safe. Joining us on A Public Affair ahead the event is panelist and Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Raquel Rutledge. Rutlege is a 2010 Pultizer Prize in Local Reporting winner for her reporting on the fraud and abuse uncovered in a child-care program.
Her 2021 investigation “Wires and Fires,” (co-reported with John Diedrich and Daphne Chen) was a 2022 Pulitzer Prize finalist. The series uncovers how electrical code violations and fatal fires are rampant in the Milwaukee’s poorest neighborhoods. Rutledge joins us to talk to us about that reporting and the importance of local reporting.
