La Risa Lynch
The Chicago Reporter
A passion for community, enterprise and international reporting landed South Side native La Risa Lynch her dream job — a position at The Chicago Reporter. It is not her first stint at the investigative news organization, however. With her communications degree in hand from Alabama State University, La Risa interned at the Reporter many moons ago. Her experience ignited a fire in her to report on social justice issues that continued to burn while she worked at the Austin Weekly News, The Final Call, Streetwise, ProgressIllinois.com and other news organizations. La Risa enjoys traveling, jazz, reading and learning French. Toujours soucieux de faire bon journalisme!
