Journalism in the Public Interest

About Get Involved

ProPublica is committed to journalism in the public interest and recognizes that you help make much of that journalism possible. So today, we’re launching another way for our readers to take part in our mission: Get Involved.

Get Involved is all about action. Wherever you see Get Involved, you will find ways to contribute to ProPublica’s journalism, through discussions, community groups, calls for stories, crowd-sourcing projects and more. We care about likes and shares, but we care more about connecting with people like you with insights, expertise and stories to share.

Get involved is also about impact. At its best, journalism can spur reform and inspire solutions. We want to help you be a part of that. Whether airing your opinion, proposing solutions to the ProPublica community or giving your two cents to elected officials, our goal is to facilitate constructive action around our journalism.

With action and impact as our guideposts, you’ll notice many pages in Get Involved include a participation metric. We also banner two metrics atop each page that give a sense of our overall community and help keep us motivated.

Tips shared: This is the total number of stories readers have shared with us through callouts and questionnaires. Such callouts help inform our reporting on everything from housing discrimination to patient safety.

Contributors: This is the total number of people contributing to the ProPublica community through groups, crowdsourcing, or the Reporting Network. To new readers, welcome. We hope you’ll explore Get Involved and we invite you to sign up for our Reporting Network below to receive updates about our investigations and information on collaborative reporting projects as they arise. Tell us a little about yourself and what interests you, and we’ll keep you updated on future opportunities to get involved.
