Since our launch in March 2015 we’ve punched above our weight.

We were pulling apart the racism and scapegoating of refugees months before the crisis went mainstream. We secured an apology and correction from the Telegraph for major errors in a piece on social mobility.

And we were the first to bulldoze shameful newspaper coverage of last week’s LinkedIn sexism row – when a lawyer was called a ‘femanazi’ by the press.

Now we want to build on this work and take the fight to the newspapers.

As a non-profit start-up we are entirely funded by readers like you.

Can you chip in to help us fight for an honest press?

Support us now.

Thanks for caring – let’s keep up the fight!
