Examining the Influence of Inequality

Center for Public Integrity

The Center for Public Integrity was established in 1989, making it one of the oldest and largest nonprofit news organizations in the United States. Established by journalist Charles Lewis, its mission as an investigative newsroom is to examine the impact of money on the widening inequality of our democratic systems. Conversely, the Center for Public Integrity also studies the ways in which laws and policies emanating from Washington, D.C. affect inequity at the state and local levels. In order to accomplish this, the Center frequently collaborates with both local and national newsrooms from coast to coast. Its Pulitzer Prize-winning reporting has had a sizable impact on government entities and corporations alike‚Äďaltering countless laws and policies, pressuring government offices to release information of critical value to the public, and holding corporations accountable for abuses of power.
