Celebrating a 50-year legacy of award-winning investigative journalism on race and poverty, Friends of The Chicago Reporter seeks your support to raise the profile of The Chicago Reporter’s work and history. We hope you will join us today with a tax deductible contribution.
As alumni of The Chicago Reporter, a group that has spanned its nearly 50 year history, we are concerned about the future of the Reporter, which has served as an iconic journalistic agent of change through its fact- and data-based reporting.
In September, the Community Renewal Society put the Reporter on “hiatus” and removed its editor and publisher with no public announcement or explanation. Months later, we are still in the dark about its future.
Join us in calling on the Community Renewal Society to restore the editorial independence and resume publishing The Chicago Reporter by signing our petition.
