Strategic Writing, Reporting and Editing

In 2008, Peter Hardin began using his storytelling skills–gained in more than three decades as a journalist—to help nonprofit groups working to influence social change.

His journalism career included more than 26 years as a Washington correspondent, including 15 for the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Hardin’s investigative series on eugenics—sometimes called “segregation’s science”—and its history in Virginia sparked apologies by the legislature and governor. Six other states later adopted similar actions. The Virginia Press Association gave his newspaper its highest public service award. The series was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize.

He received his B.A. degree from Hampshire College. He lives with his family in Takoma Park, Md., adjoining Washington, D.C.
