About Me

Amy Bracken is an independent reporter and radio producer. She covers migration, economic development, religion and human rights. She’s based in Boston, but in recent years she’s reported from Europe and across the Americas, especially Haiti. Her stories have been aired and published by PRI’s The World, Latino USA, USA Today, and Al Jazeera America, among others. She’s a graduate of Columbia University’s Journalism School and the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, where she wrote her thesis on the detention of asylum-seekers. In her free time, Amy looks for music to dance to, hills to climb, and bodies of water to jump into.
