We’ve launched a crowdfunding campaign to support our “Unequal Risk” investigative series, which seeks to expose how America’s workers face risks from toxic exposure that would be considered unacceptable outside the job. It’s a direct way to take action on stories that otherwise won’t be told.

Our partnership with the Beacon crowdfunding site is a fantastic way to put the stories of the victims front and center and allow us to keep at the reporting that brings those stories to life.

For me this project, led by Jim Morris and his team in the Environment & Workers’ Rights unit, goes to the heart of what we do: the impact of money in politics and systemic failure to protect people. It’s also about inequality as so many of the team’s stories show that minorities and the poor are the most effected.

Our goal is to raise $10,000. We’d be more than grateful for your support.

Please take a minute to check out our crowdfunding site on Beacon Reader and please share the information with your friends and contacts. The more people who are aware of the campaign, the more likely we are to reach our goal and to make crowdsourcing an important part of our revenue in future.

Thank you,

Peter Bale
CEO, The Center for Public Integrity
