SARAH L. RYLEY  Investigative & Data Journalist

Hi, I'm an investigative and data journalist for the Boston Globe. In recent years, I've reported on the U.S. response to Covid-19 for the New York Times Opinion video team, law enforcement's failure to solve homicides and shootings for The Trace and BuzzFeed News, and the NYPD’s “broken windows” policing strategy for the New York Daily News and ProPublica.

My work has triggered the passage of dozens of new laws and other reforms, played a significant role in dismantling “broken windows” policing in New York City, and helped free a man from prison. My earliest impacts, which I’m still very proud of, include helping to save an Underground Railroad home from eminent domain and jump-starting the construction of Brooklyn Bridge Park. My series on the NYPD's abuse of the nuisance abatement law, done in partnership with the Daily News and ProPublica, was the recipient of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.

I studied journalism at Wayne State University in Detroit and was name a distinguished alumna in 2018. Prior to discovering my love of reporting, I was an artist, community organizer and waitress.
