Liz Simons Named Board Chair for The Marshall Project

The Marshall Project, a Pulitzer-Prize winning nonprofit newsroom covering criminal justice, has named Liz Simons, Heising-Simons Foundation’s Board Chair, to serve as Board Chair — following Neil Barsky, founder of The Marshall Project.

The Marshall Project is a nonpartisan, nonprofit news organization that seeks to create and sustain a sense of national urgency about the U.S. justice system. Since its founding in 2015, The Marshall Project has won two Pulitzer Prizes and is driving wide-reaching impact on the justice system both nationally and locally.

“Neil Barsky has left an indelible mark on both non-profit journalism and criminal justice reform, creating an institution with integrity and lasting impact,” said Liz Simons. “I am honored to follow in his footsteps and lead the Board of The Marshall Project at this urgent moment in the national conversation on policing and justice.”
