The Chicago Reporter's investigations engage leaders and residents in critical issues—all with a unique focus on race and poverty. Through data, analysis and the compelling stories of those most affected by inequality, the bimonthly print and online newsmagazine serves as an important watchdog of government and other institutions. Our work helps move ideas to action, arming communities, advocates and decision makers with information and providing opportunities for dialogue. Since its inception in 1972, the Reporter has also provided an important training ground for young journalists, especially people of color.
The Chicago Reporter uses data, analysis and the voices of those affected by inequality to give communities and leaders the tools they need to make change.
The Chicago Reporter is editorially independent of Community Renewal Society.
