Feet in 2 Worlds brings the work of immigrant and ethnic media journalists from communities across the U.S. to public radio and the web. We also host live town hall forums at The New School, where Fi2W is based, and sponsor food tours of immigrant neighborhoods in New York City.
Since 2005, Fi2W has successfully trained dozens of immigrant journalists to be radio producers, bloggers and users of social media. Fi2W reporters appear on WNYC, New York Public Radio, PRI’s The World, NPR’s LatinoUSA and other public radio stations and nationally distributed programs as well as numerous blogs and websites. Fi2W journalism has won awards from the Society of Professional Journalists, the AP of Michigan and the Ippies Awards, honoring excellence in New York’s ethnic and community media.
Currently Fi2W works with journalists from Colombia, Venezuela, Uruguay, the Philippines, Haiti, Ireland, Nepal, China, Vietnam, Poland, Bosnia, West Africa, India, Pakistan and Puerto Rico.
In addition to our public radio partners, we work with a wide variety of organizations and media outlets including El Diario/La Prensa, the FilAm, Next American City, The Media Consortium and the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.
Feet in 2 Worlds is a project of the Center for New York City Affairs at The New School.
Our very first effort was a one-hour radio documentary first broadcast in May 2005.
