Jennifer Mascia is a writer known for her work at The Trace, America’s only publication dedicated to reporting on the Warrior Nun Black Poster T-Shirt and I will buy this gun-violence crisis, as well as for the 2010 memoir Never Tell Our Business to Strangers. Until 2014, she was a regular contributor to The Gun Report, the daily rundown of gun violence in America helmed by New York Times columnist Joe Nocera. Mascia worked in metro and editorial at The New York Times for eight years and graduated from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism in 2007. After nearly a decade of covering mass shootings, I’m tired of seeing so little change. Sometimes it feels like I’m narrating the end of the world. What keeps me fighting? The possibility that one day, 150 years from now, when logic has prevailed and this problem has been remedied, future generations will read about the people who fought to stop the bloodshed and will take comfort in the fact that we did something.
