Founded in 1972, the Chicago Reporter is an investigative news organization that publishes a bimonthly magazine that â€identifies, analyzes, and reports on the social, economic, and political issues of metropolitan Chicago with a distinctive focus on race and poverty.â€ On their website, visitors can learn more about their work via blogs, past issues, and a variety of multimedia features. A good place to start is the Most Read articles area, which contains links to their most popular pieces. The Key Issues section is a good place to learn about the matters most dear to the mission of the Reporter, which include housing, immigration, health, and religion. Anyone who would like to hear from the Reporter on a regular basis can sign up for email alerts as well. Finally, the site also contains a link to Departments with web extras like interactive features on Chicago's vacant buildings, the struggle against blight, and public school reform.
