Danielle Mackey is a member of The New Yorker‘s editorial staff.
Investigative, longform journalist. Former freelancer based in El Salvador for the better part of twelve years.
My work has appeared online in The Intercept, The New Yorker and The Atlantic, among others.
My ongoing longterm project is about policing and gangs in El Salvador and in U.S. foreign policy. I’ve conducted years of reporting on this, funded by grants from various journalism foundations. A second ongoing project is a group essay collection, which I am editing.
As a freelancer, I was part of a team of Central American reporters engaged in multi-year investigations, and was a contributor to Honduran outlet Contracorriente. I was also an adjunct professor in the journalism department at CUNY Lehman College in the Bronx, and worked on the research team at The Intercept.
Former NGO-worker and horse trainer. Alum of the NYU master’s program in Global Journalism and Latin American Studies. Property of the sassiest Salvadoran cat.
