Newsrooms from Chile, El Salvador, Mexico and Nicaragua were chosen for new Report for the World cohort

“Report for the World today announced the selection of 15 new host newsrooms, more than doubling its global network from eight to 20 countries. Among them are five, independent newsrooms reporting on their home countries in exile.

‘As we expand to 20 countries this year, we have also extended our support to newsrooms operating in exile, due to conflicts in their countries, and direct attacks and persecution of journalists,’ said Preethi Nallu, Report for the World’s global director. ‘The work from the journalists that we are supporting from Syria, Afghanistan, Myanmar, Nicaragua, and Russia, will be vital to continue holding their governments accountable and keep the spotlight on the human rights abuses in their countries and on the consequences of forced displacement for millions of people.’”

CIPER from Chile, Alharaca from El Salvador, Causa Natura from Mexico, and Divergentes (in exile) from Nicaragua were the Latin American newsrooms chosen for this new cohort.
