The Outlier Team

Outlier is founded and managed by Sarah Alvarez and is a fiscally sponsored project of Investigative Reporters and Editors.  We run with much help, support and brainpower from an incredible community of public service minded journalists. We are fueled by the stories and experiences of the strong, resilient and fabulous people in Michigan and communities all over the country working hard to get ahead when the deck seems stacked against success.

Outlier owes a particular debt of gratitude to Kimberly Springer, Andrew Haeg, James Hamilton, Dawn Garcia, Aaron Glantz, the JSK Fellowship at Stanford University and Michigan Radio’s State of Opportunity project and Infowire (Outlier 1.0); in particular Tamar Charney, Sarah Hulett, Vince Duffy, Jennifer Guerra, Dustin Dwyer, Brittany Bartkoviak. This project is supported by a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. We are so grateful for their generous support.
