Stonehill journalism program


Hi everyone! My name's Victoria and I'm currently interning for a nonprofit called Fair Shot For All which works to combat income inequality across Mass. It's been a great way to get involved in the community and gain great experience if you're interested in political advocacy or outreach. They are now accepting applications for the summer internship so if you're going to be around you should definitely apply! Check out their page Fair Shot For All and here's the application.

My friends and I decided early in the day to go shopping at the South Shore Plaza in Braintree. We had nothing else to do since it was the first week of a...

Student Community Reporting During a Lockdown: Learning about Social Justice via Zoom 01/13/2022

Read how Stonehill journalism students covered the community effort last year to get the first degree murder sentence of a Brockton man commuted. This week, Gov. Charlie Baker commuted the sentence from first to second degree murder, making William Allen eligible for parole. (The man who did the actual killing plead guilty to second degree murder and was already out on parole, by the way). See how they did it during a pandemic when they couldn't talk with sources face-to-face.

Student Community Reporting During a Lockdown: Learning about Social Justice via Zoom Understanding how the criminal justice system works is a key element in understanding the social justice. The law may be clear but the end result can often be muddy. Through this project, done during a tough educational time, students were able to see first-hand (often via Zoom) how community leader...

SECOND CHANCES: punishment, justice and hope for a new life on the outside 06/19/2021

Advanced newswriting students wrote about the community effort to free a Brockton man serving a life sentence for murder during the robbery of a drug dealer. The man, William Allen, was convicted under the joint venture theory - because he was there at the time, he was just as responsible as the person who did the killing. The killer plead guilty to second degree and is now out on parole. Allen was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life without parole. The state recently held a commutation hearing for Allen. Here is the update and the student stories:

SECOND CHANCES: punishment, justice and hope for a new life on the outside A Brockton man, William Allen, is serving a mandatory life sentence for murder, even though the person who stabbed the victim to death is free on parole. Now, group of community leaders hope to convince the governor to commute Allen's sentence. Stonehill College Advanced Newswriting students in the....
