Founded in 2011 by women reporters, Pública is the first nonprofit investigative journalism agency in Brazil. Our articles, in-depth investigations into topics chosen by the public, were republished with creative commons permissions by over 700 news agencies just last year. All of our reporting is grounded in rigorous fact checking and carries as its underlying principle the uncompromising defense of human rights. We investigate public administration, which includes all levels of government and congressional houses; the social and environmental impact of corporations and their corruption and anti-transparency practices; the justice system in terms of its efficacy, transparency, and equity; and the violence against vulnerable populations in urban and rural areas. With the goal of fostering independent journalism, we also provide mentorship programs for journalists, award reporting micro-grants, lead discussions and events about journalism and support innovate projects.
