A Searchlight New Mexico investigative reporter, Ed Williams, will be present to speak with grandparents about their personal experiences and concerns raising their grandchildren in Santa Fe's Grandparents Raising Grandchildren group Thursday, June 14th, at 4:30pm. Searchlight New Mexico, according to their website, is a non-partisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to investigative reporting and innovative data journalism. Their focus includes topics of local, regional, and national interest in order to allow the public to see into the oftentimes hidden work of government. Their mission statement goes on to read "we believe great reporting empowers people to demand honest, effective public policy and to seek appropriate remedies."
Reporter Williams has written about poverty, public health and the environment in the U.S. and Latin America for digital, print, and radio media outlets since 2005. Before joining Searchlight New Mexico, Williams worked with KUNM Public Radio in Albuquerque, covering public health. He tells the Santa Fe Grandparents group facilitator that he looks forward to hearing directly from the grandparents who are caring for their grandchildren.
