The Society of Professional Journalists aims to encourage free press by supporting journalists fighting for truth, like Olson. In 2018, Olson was chosen as a Pulitzer Center Student Fellow. He spent his summer in Chiapas, Mexico’s southernmost state, observing the Zapatistas, a former guerilla group advocating against Indigenous repression. To read more about the project, visit here.
Olson’s award-winning feature, published Aug. 2018, described the struggle of the small village of Nicolas Ruiz as the villagers sought justice for the crimes which displaced them. You can read it on the Pulitzer Center website .
This award is the third Olson has won for his Pulitzer project. Coming second to WUFT News, the University of Florida’s PBS affiliate for Gainesville, Olson continues to hold his own in the world of journalism as he writes impactful stories of truth and hardship.Tagged As
