WHY WE INVESTED
As ongoing racial inequality roils the national landscape, too few journalists working on investigative reporting come from the communities suffering the most. The Ida B. Wells Society seeks to raise awareness and opportunities for investigative reporting among journalists of color, and to foster the desire for social justice journalism and accountability reporting regarding racial injustice.
The Ida B. Wells Society will provide mentorships, trainings, and support to journalists of color to further develop their investigative and data reporting skills and increase the ranks, retention, and profile of reporters and editors of color in the field as a result.
