Latest Keynote Speaker Addition Sarah Alvarez

Sarah Alvarez, Outlier Media

Meet our latest JAWS CAMP keynote speaker Sarah Alvarez, founder of Outlier Media. Sarah, who will be part of CAMP ON DEMAND Dec. 4-6, started her career in civil rights law in New York and worked as a public radio reporter before founding Outlier Media in 2016. Her work has been featured on NPR, Marketplace, The Center for Investigative Reporting, Bridge Magazine, The Detroit News, and The New York Times.

Sarah believes journalism is a service and should be responsive to the needs of all people. Sarah developed Outlier’s model after years of trying to figure out how journalists could do a better job filling information gaps and increasing accountability to low-income news consumers. She is a graduate of the University of Michigan, Columbia Law School and the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University. She launched Outlier during her year as John S. Knight (JSK) Fellow at Stanford University. Sarah lives in northwest Detroit with her family.
