Type Investigations Announces a New Initiative for Incarcerated Reporters

The Inside/Out Journalism Project works with incarcerated reporters to produce feature-length investigations. The launch was amplified by industry leaders across the country including Columbia Journalism Review, Nieman Lab, and Reuters Institute. The initiative will produce rigorous investigative coverage of the criminal legal system in the coming year from a vantage point not typically represented in mainstream media.

Roe Was Never Enough

Even before the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June 2021-22, Ida B. Wells fellow Adreanna Rodriguez began investigating abortion access in Native communities. The resulting audio piece, produced in partnership with Vice News Reports where Rodriguez is an associate producer, explores the government’s promise to provide health care to Native people through the Indian Health Service and its failure to offer comprehensive reproductive care. “For a lot of Native people,” Rodriguez says, “Roe has never been a reality.”
