Attention US journalists: want to help expose corruption and governance challenges in your state? Interested in working with a trio of organizations committed to promoting transparency and accountability around the world and here at home? Then you should apply to work as a contributor to the State Accountability Project being launched by Global Integrity, the Center for Public Integrity, and Public Radio International.
Our friends at the Investigative News Network were kind enough to run a story summarizing the project and the work opportunity. As they describe:
The Center for Public Integrity, an INN member organization, is launching an innovative project on state government accountability and transparency, and is looking for assistance from top-notch, seasoned statehouse reporters.
The State Accountability Project, a comprehensive, first-of-its-kind investigation into state government, will rely on original, in-depth, on-the-ground reporting and data collection in each state, to uncover areas of potential corruption in our statehouses. The end result: a state-by-state ranking of government accountability, covering everything from political financing and ethics laws to redistricting processes and pension fund management.
