Clara Harter is a reporter for the Los Angeles Daily News and believes great journalism is where storytelling meets truth-telling. Right now, Harter sees the story of Los Angeles as the story of its streets, where many people are forced to live and often die. She strives to tell this story by reporting on four intersecting crises: homelessness, housing, substance use and healthcare. She recently published a four-part investigation on fentanyl addiction in L.A.’s MacArthur Park as a 2023 California Health Equity Fellow with the USC Center for Health Journalism.
