Caitlin Dickerson, national immigration reporter for The New York Times, will discuss United States immigration policy at a college tea hosted by Ezra Stiles College. The tea will be held Tuesday, Feb. 4 at 4 p.m. in the Ezra Stiles Head of College House, 302 York St. The event is co-sponsored by the Yale Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration, and the Poynter Fellowship in Journalism.

For the New York Times, Dickerson has covered stories including deportation policy, the everyday lives of immigrants, and conditions in detention centers at the United States-Mexico border. She is also a frequent guest on The New York Times podcast “The Daily.”

Prior to joining The New York Times in 2016, Dickerson worked as an investigative reporter for National Public Radio. Her 2016 reporting on the testing of mustard gas by the U.S. military on American troops resulted in the passing of a 2017 federal law that compensated test subjects for their injuries. She is the recipient of the George Foster Peabody Award, the Edward R. Murrow Award, and is a two-time finalist for the Livingston Award.

The Poynter Fellowship in Journalism was established by Nelson Poynter, who received his master’s degree in 1927 from Yale. The fellowship brings to campus distinguished reporters, editors, and others who have made important contributions to the media. Among recent Poynter fellows are Charles Siebert, L. Jon Wertheim, and Ashlyn Still.
