Support Journalism that Confronts Race, Poverty, and Income Inequality

Founded on the heels of the civil rights movement in the 1960s, The Chicago Reporter confronts racial and economic inequality, using the power of investigative journalism. Our mission is national but grounded in Chicago, one of the most segregated cities in the nation and a bellwether for urban policies.

The Reporter is the nation’s only nonprofit news organization whose mission is to investigate race. That was true in 1972, and that is still true today. We use data to show how the policies of government and private institutions affect racial inequality, and we hold policymakers accountable. We report from the viewpoint of the people and communities affected by these policies. And we practice journalism that informs change and solutions.

We need your support to continue to produce our trademark, investigative journalism on race, poverty, and income inequality. If you value our work, make a donation today.
