Gretchen Rachel Hammond, a senior staff reporter for Windy City Times, won a Peter Lisagor Award from the Chicago Headline Club for her four-part series on violence against transgender women on Chicago's West Side.

The category was in-depth reporting in community media.

The first part of the series looked at the case of Eisha Love, a transgender woman sitting in Cook County Jail for more than two years awaiting trial in a case where she claims she was the victim, not the perpetrator. As Hammond wrote: "[As] a transgender woman of color living in Austin, a neighborhood on Chicago's West Side, Love was a part of an entirely different world that hardly anyone outside of those streets seemed to either care about or notice at all."

The other articles in the series took a more in-depth look at the cases of violence against other transgender women in that area of the city.

Parts 1 and 2 of the series ran Sept. 27, 2014; part 3 ran Sept. 24, 2014; and part 4 ran Oct. 1, 2014. Here are links to the series:
