About us

We are an editorially independent journalism organization based at the UBC School of Journalism, Writing, and Media. Founded in 2016, we are leaders in doing global journalism differently. We innovate industry practice, educate the next generation, and promote greater equity in journalism.

Our journalism and research projects are funded through donations and grants. Every donated dollar allows our small team the time to do the rigorous research, interviewing, data gathering, editing, and fact-checking needed to seek and report the truth. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today.
