Banished (Digital Journalism)

 2018 | The Marshall Project in partnership with Longreads

Using a combination of video, evocative photo essays and interactive maps and graphics, “Banished” tells the story of sex offenders in Miami-Dade County who have been left homeless due to increasingly restrictive housing and registration laws. A complicated and conflicting piece, The Marshall Project’s ambitious storytelling compels the reader to confront weighing morality against humanity and ask the question: “How do you build a life in the shadows of a society that no longer wants you?”
