Partnering with journalists on global investigations that serve the public interest

How we work with journalists

The Signals Network supports media organizations that are committed to investigate collaboratively and to reveal major wrongdoing and potential threats to democracy, freedom and justice.

Through our Media Collaboration Program, The Signals Network supports media organizations in their investigations. The Signals Network can:

  • Connect partner media organizations with collaborative media initiatives;

  • Play a project management role in collaborative efforts of media organizations;

  • Help devise and implement confidentiality protocols using existing technological resources that enhance the privacy and security of information shared between journalists and sources;

  • Provide partner media organizations access to a network of lawyers to which they can refer putative whistleblowers who are in need of legal counsel;

  • Help create new resources for journalists and whistleblowers.
