Founded in 2015, Injustice Watch is a nonprofit, nonpartisan journalism organization that conducts in-depth research exposing institutional failures that obstruct justice and equality. Our work largely focuses on the justice system, individuals who are poorly served by the system, and the policies that perpetuate inequities within the system. Much of our work focuses on how justice is meted out in Cook County; however, we occasionally take on stories outside our primary coverage area that are consistent with our mission. Along with our primary commitment to investigative journalism, Injustice Watch mentors and trains the next generation of reporters through robust internship and fellowship programs. We also partner with communities to create opportunities for discourse and dialogue around our journalism, and experiment with creative, human-centered forms of storytelling.
