Isaac Saul is a 25-year-old journalist based in Harlem, NY (and a decent ultimate frisbee player).
Over his career, Isaac reported on racism that drives sports fandom, how Harlem is combating gang violence, what harsh rhetoric and 9/11 security has done to our borders and the most unique home in America. His endorsement of Hillary Clinton received over four million views and altered the conversation around millennial support of the Democratic nominee.
Yahoo subsequently named Isaac one of the 16 people who shaped the 2016 election alongside Khizr Khan, Bo Copley and others.
In 2015, Isaac's investigative piece on predatory payday loans changed public policy when it was cited by Maxine Waters in a letter to congress urging Universities and retirement plans to divest from certain lending services. After losing several classmates to heroin overdoses, Ike took a deep dive into what caused our country's epidemic of opioid addiction.
When Isaac left The Huffington Post, he worked alongside Ashton Kutcher and a talented team to build A Plus, one of the world's largest positive news outlets. His work has appeared on CNN, The Huffington Post, Medium, The Daily Mail, A Plus and more. A Plus was recently acquired by Chicken Soup for the Soul. You can check out my weekly column "A Grain of Saul" on A Plus every Tuesday morning.
