The Ida B. Wells Society is thrilled to offer FREE one-year IRE memberships for around 30 Ida B. Wells Society members thanks to an extremely generous donation provided by Brian M. Rosenthal, Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter for the New York Times.
Investigative Reporters and Editors is a grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of journalism. The memberships will be awarded on a first come, first served basis. These memberships are only available for IBWS members who do not currently have an active IRE membership.
