Mission Statement

Injustice Watch is a non-partisan, not-for-profit, multimedia journalism organization that conducts in-depth research exposing institutional failures that obstruct justice and equality.

Description

At a time when racial and economic disparities are fostering heightened levels of distrust, disaffection, and violence, the ability of traditional news organizations to dig deeply into the causes of social injustice has been greatly curtailed. Readers and viewers are turning increasingly to social media and ideologically-driven sources for their news, and the resulting decline in audiences and advertising revenues has forced newspapers and television stations to lay off reporters and cut news-gathering resources.

This is why organizations such as Injustice Watch are crucial. Our team of highly accomplished investigative reporters, full-time reporting fellows, and talented interns combines data journalism with conventional reporting to delve far deeper into crucial criminal and social justice issues than can traditional news organizations. Our work frequently appears in the work of conventional news outlets.

We are also helping to train the next generation of investigative reporters. A demographically diverse group of paid interns from the University of Chicago, Northwestern University, Brown University, the University of Michigan, and other major academic institutions participate extensively in our projects.
