Journalist Daniel Heimpel is the founder of Fostering Media Connections, a nonprofit he started in 2010. He focuses on the foster system through what he calls "solutions-based reporting."
He got the idea after noticing that a lot of reporting on foster kids tends to focus on how hard life is for these kids, rather than on ways to help.
Currently a lecturer at UC Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy as well as USC’s Sol (SOUL) Price School of Public Policy, he came into KALW to talk about the intersection of journalism, child welfare, and policy.
