Ari Shapiro reports on the White House for NPR with a focus on national security and legal affairs. His stories appear on all of NPR's news magazines, including All Things Considered and Morning Edition, where he is also a frequent guest host. Shapiro began covering the White House in 2010 after five years as NPR's justice correspondent, during which time his coverage of Justice Department policies and controversies chronicled one of the most tumultuous periods in the department's history.

The first NPR reporter to be promoted to correspondent before age 30, Shapiro has been recognized with several journalism prizes, including The American Bar Association's Silver Gavel for his coverage of prisoners lost in Louisiana's detention system after Hurricane Katrina; The Daniel Schorr Journalism Prize for his investigation of methamphetamine use and HIV transmission; the Columbia Journalism Review's "laurel" recognition of his investigation into disability benefits for injured veterans; and the American Judges' Association's American Gavel for a body of work reporting on courts and the justice system. He has appeared as a guest analyst on TV news programs including The NewsHour, The Rachel Maddow Show and CNN Newsroom.

The LGBTQ community has the power to influence social, political and economic issues in the community, legislature, business and civic organizations, and in our institutions of higher education. The goal of UMKC Pride is to provide ideas and perspectives that support LGBTQ community members in harnessing and commanding our own power.
