I am a journalist based in New York City, currently working at The Intercept. I grew up in Italy, lived in the UK, New Mexico, India, Benin, Egypt, Palestine and Haiti, and I’m now a proud resident of the Bronx.
My writing has been published, among others, by Al Jazeera America, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Christian Science Monitor, AFP, DNAinfo, Truthout, PassBlue, The Electronic Intifada, The Star-Ledger, and VICE News. I have reported on the United Nations and Occupy Wall Street, as well as on poverty, education and immigration in Newark and the Bronx. I lived in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, where I covered the aftermath of the January 2010 earthquake and the aid industry there. At VICE, I have covered, among other things, the Ferguson protests, and policing, race, and criminal justice in America. I have worked in London and Moscow, reported on growing tensions in East Jerusalem, embedded with FARC guerillas in Colombia, and covered gang violence in El Salvador.
I love telling stories about justice and the people fighting for it.
Alice is pronounced the Italian way, a-lee-chay, like Muhammad Ali and Che Guevara. You can email me at alicesperi [at] gmail [dot] com or follow me on Twitter @alicesperi. You can find my resume here.
