Croakey’s ‘JusticeCOVID’ initiative is investigating the health issues for prisoners during the pandemic.
Its journalists have interviewed families, advocates, doctors, lawyers and social service providers to shine a light on some of the pressing issues affecting the incarcerated.
The support of a grant from the Institute has helped Croakey to produced in depth articles, graphics and podcasts, as well as providing the space and time to develop sources and chase new story angles.
The reporting has been particularly timely given the recent groundswell of support for the Black Lives Matter movement and, closer to home, those seeking justice for Indigenous people who have died in custody.
