CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — The Community Renewal Society is the publisher of the Chicago Reporter, a non-profit investigative news organization founded in 1972 to focus on social justice issues in Chicago and around the country. The Reporter publishes a print magazine three times per year, and has recently focused on increasing its digital presence and begun publishing articles online on a weekly basis. This online shift is part of a strategy to help the Reporter’s investigations become digital resources in the ongoing national conversation about race, and social inequity, much of which unfolds online.
