Avi Asher-Schapiro

Brooklyn, New York


I am an investigative journalist now based in New York. I’ve done stints at VICE News, Newsweek, and Tribune, covering a wide range of issues, from the Syrian Civil War, to campaign finance, to the way Uber exploits its workforce. My journalism is regularly published in outlets like The Intercept, the Atlantic Monthly, and the Columbia Journalism Review. Right now, I work as the North America Researcher and Tech Reporter at the Committee to Protect Journalists, an international press freedom and advocacy organization. My work focuses on press freedom issues in North America, with an emphasis on technology, surveillance, and digital threats to reporters around the world, from the Middle East, to Latin America. I am especially interested in how technological change impacts the international journalism ecosystem–for better, and for worse.
