The Center for Public Integrity Seeks 50 Experienced Reporters for State Accountability Project
Over the next 18-months, the Center for Public Integrity will create a risk analysis of corruption in all 50 state governments.

We want reporters who know their state and how to dig. The project team will also create online data, reporting, and technology tools to help empower people to demand greater accountability and reform.
The Center is partnering with Public Radio International and Global Integrity on the project. The Center has been a leader in nonprofit investigative journalism for more than 20 years and our work is widely cited, referenced, and used by media and non-media organizations around the country.
