About the awardee:

Leila Fadel, a Lebanese-American journalist, is a host of Morning Edition, as well as NPR’s morning news podcast Up First.

As a national correspondent, Fadel consistently reported on the fault lines of this divided nation. She flew to Minneapolis in the midst of the pandemic as the city erupted in grief and anger over the killing of George Floyd. She’s reported on policing and race, on American Muslim communities and on the jarring inequities the coronavirus laid bare in the healthcare system. Her “Muslims in America: A New Generation” series, in collaboration with National Geographic, won the prestigious Goldziher Prize in 2019.

Previously, she was NPR’s international correspondent based in Cairo and covered the wave of revolts in the Middle East and their aftermaths in Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, and beyond.

Before joining NPR, Fadel covered the Middle East for The Washington Post as the Cairo Bureau Chief. Prior to her position as Cairo Bureau Chief for the Post, she covered the Iraq war for nearly five years with Knight Ridder, McClatchy Newspapers, and later the Washington Post. Her foreign coverage of the devastating human toll of the Iraq war earned her the George. R. Polk award in 2007. In 2016 she was the Council on Foreign Relations Edward R. Murrow fellow.

The theme for this year’s National Convention will be “New Challenges, New Realities, New Opportunities” and we can’t wait to have you! After a two-year hiatus, we are excited to gather with our community again. We are putting together some informative, cultural, diverse, and fun program for you.
