About Us

Injustice Watch is an independent non­-partisan investigative news organization that conducts in-­depth research on systemic inequalities and injustices in public institutions, with a principal focus on criminal justice issues. Our primary objective is to expose economic and racial disparities at all points in the criminal justice system. Our team of highly accomplished investigative reporters, full-­time reporting fellows, and talented interns combines data journalism with conventional news reporting to delve far deeper into crucial criminal justice and social justice issues than can traditional news organizations.  Additionally, Injustice Watch is dedicated to training the next generation of investigative reporters through paid internships and partnerships with several major universities.

Injustice Watch is the successor to two organizations previously led by its two founders: Rick Tulsky, a Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter who directed Northwestern University's Medill Watchdog program and Rob Warden, the former publisher of the Chicago Lawyer Magazine who directed Northwestern University Law School's Center on Wrongful Convictions.
