Jacobin is launching a new reporting effort dedicated to providing editorial, promotional, and financial support to journalists pursuing long-form investigative projects in the spirit of our democratic-socialist project.

This year, our particular point of emphasis will be on issues related to immigrant rights, the US-Mexico border, and voter suppression, as well as climate change and the environment.

Our investigative projects are funded by your donations and the support of our sponsors, including the Puffin Environmental Reporting Fund.

How to Apply

Send the following materials to [email protected] with “Reporting Proposal” in the subject line. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. You may receive an email requesting more information.

  • Send along your CV, along with relevant writing clips.
