Stephanie McMillan Wins RFK Journalism Award


Michael Cavna has a nice feature-story style piece on Stephanie McMillan winning the cartooning category of this year's RFK Journalism Awards. Those are awards given out by the Robert F. Kennedy Center For Justice & Human Rights that focus on human rights and social justice coverage. McMillan is being recognized for her Code Green comics and the The Beginning Of The American Fall piece she did on the Occupy movement.

The sponsoring paper named by the awards is the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, although I think this is a bigger boost for the site Cartoon Movement. When you combine the Herblock Prize win that Matt Bors recently enjoyed and his Pulitzer finalist status with McMillan's new honor, it's hard to deny the obvious traction being accrued to their shared platform through such achievements.

McMillan will receive her award on May 24 during a ceremony in Washington, DC.
