Feet in 2 Worlds tells the stories of today’s immigrants

Since our founding in 2004, Feet in 2 Worlds has brought the work of immigrant journalists from communities across the U.S. to public radio and online news sites.

Our areas of special interest include food in immigrant communities, climate change, the role of immigrant voters in U.S. elections and arts and culture.

Hundreds of immigrant journalists have gone through Feet in 2 Worlds’ unique and highly successful training programs — including fellowships, workshops, and internships — enhancing their skills and allowing them to advance their careers. Fi2W alumni have gone on to jobs at WNYC, The New York Times, Buzzfeed, The Associated Press, WHYY, WDET, PRI and many other news organizations.

Fi2W stories appear on WNYC, WDET, NPR’s Here and Now, PRI’s The World, and in numerous online news outlets such as Huffington Post, The Nation, NPR’s The Salt, Yes Magazine!, Slate, Africa Is a Country and Latino Rebels. We host live events, in person and online

Fi2W journalism has won multiple awards from the Society of Professional Journalists, along with the IACP (International Association of Culinary Professionals) for the Food in 2 Worlds podcast series, the AP of Michigan, and the Ippies Awards, honoring excellence in New York’s ethnic and community media.

Fi2W works with journalists from a broad range of immigrant communities as well as students at The New School, the University of North Carolina,  NYU, Universidad del Sagrado Corazón in San Juan. PR. and the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.

Our very first effort was a one-hour radio documentary called ‘Feet in Two Worlds: Immigrants in a Global City’ broadcast in May 2005.  

Feet in 2 Worlds, Inc. is a non-profit corporation, fiscally sponsored by the Institute for Nonprofit News.
