Mission and Vision of Injustice Watch
Injustice Watch is a non-partisan, not-for-profit journalism organization that conducts in-depth research exposing institutional failures that obstruct justice and equality. Our goal is to listen to and center people impacted by institutional injustices and provide them with the perspectives, information and resources to hold powerful people and oppressive systems accountable.
Supporting Journalism and Exposing Barriers to Justice
We seek to solve two problems: first, the decline of critically important investigative journalism in traditional newsrooms, brought about by the decline of the newspaper business; and second, the absence of deep dive investigative research on systemic barriers to justice and equity. We aim to amplify voices of impacted communities, and tell stories that wouldn’t otherwise be told, all while mentoring the next generation of investigative journalists.
History of Injustice Watch
Injustice Watch was founded in 2015 by two eminent investigative journalists who perceived that democratic society would suffer from the decline in investigative journalism. It has grown to nine employees and produced award-winning investigations that impact public policy at the local and national level.
Our Cook County Judicial Elections Guide, produced every election cycle, is an unparalleled non-partisan, thoroughly researched, user-friendly guide to every judicial candidate on the Cook County Ballot. Our “Essential Work” multimedia series featured the perspectives of young anti-violence community organizers. And our award-winning “In Plain View” series analyzed a database of troubling law enforcement posts on Facebook.
