Type Media Center is a non-profit home for independent journalists and truth-tellers at all stages of their careers. Our mission is to produce high-impact journalism and literary nonfiction that addresses injustice and inequality, catalyzes change, informs and uplifts social movements, while transforming and diversifying the fields of journalism and publishing.

Harm’s Way

The federal government knows that millions of Americans will need to move to avoid the most punishing impacts of climate change, but the country offers little organized assistance for such relocation. When communities ask the government for help, they face steep barriers — a particular problem for communities of color.

Harm’s Way is a collaborative project with Type Investigations, Columbia Journalism Investigations, and The Center for Public Integrity that follows the stories of these communities and the obstacles they have faced while trying to get aid from their government.

The Editors Institute is a new program that trains journalists from underrepresented backgrounds to become investigative editors. Its goals are threefold: To help emerging editors better compete for jobs as leaders in their newsrooms; help news outlets find highly skilled investigative editors at a time when such candidates are scarce; and help diversify a traditionally white, male- dominated field.
