Kristin Jones

18: August 2016

Kristin Jones is assistant director of communications for The Colorado Trust, a foundation that works to achieve health equity in the state. She writes about income inequality, race and geography, with a focus on what all of that has to do with health.

Jones is a former reporter who worked for Dow Jones Newswires and The Wall Street Journal, ProPublica and other publications. As staff writer for the Center for Public Integrity in 2009 and 2010, she co-wrote and reported a series of investigative stories on sexual assault on college campuses. The series, in collaboration with NPR, won the Peabody Award, the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award, and other honors, and led to new federal guidelines on schools’ handling of sexual assault.

Before becoming a journalist, Jones worked as a researcher for the Committee to Protect Journalists, investigating and reporting on attacks on the press throughout Asia, with a focus on China.

Jones has a master’s degree from Columbia University School of Journalism, where she was a fellow in the Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism.
