Prior join The New York Times in 2017, she was a columnist and feature writer for the Toronto Star. Porter was among the journalists who arrived in Port-au-Prince shortly after the 2010 earthquake, and has returned to the country to report on its reconstruction efforts. Her latest book about that experience, A Girl Named Lovely, reflects her work as a “narrative journalist” who produces in-depth stories on issues around social justice. Porter has received the Landsberg Award for her feminist columns, and a Queen’s Jubilee Medal for grassroots community work.
