Uncovering injustice through in-depth, community focused reporting
The Social Justice News Nexus explores issues of crucial impact in our communities through innovative reporting, critical reflection and building connections between student reporters and professional journalists.
The project, launched in January 2014, is supported by the Robert R. McCormick Foundation and housed at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communications. SJNN currently maintains two sister projects. One is the six-month Social Justice News Nexus Fellowship, where burgeoning and established journalists explore social justice through in-depth reporting around a specific issue. The second project is the Medill Social Justice Scholars, which supports journalism graduate students in making social justice a focus area of their master’s degree program.
