Purpose of the Award:
Present an award to a member of the media whose work helped to further
the public's understanding of the criminal justice system and the
rights to due process and equal protection.
Origin of the Award:
CACJ’s Board of Governors endorsed this award at its January 1985
meeting, with the provision that it not be designated an annual award,
but only be presented when truly merited. The Board voted to present the
first Journalist Integrity Award in 1985 to Phil Kerby, a longtime reporter
and editorial writer for the Los Angeles Times.
