BINJ INVESTIGATIVE FEATURES

Though the mission of the Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism has come to encompass coverage of everything from community arts to municipal meetings, along with other areas that receive less and less attention from the remaining news outlets in this region, BINJ continues to pursue challenging features, reporting projects, and investigations into topics that have slipped under the radar and warrant a deeper look. Below are links to BINJ’s major investigative feature articles. 

The archives of BINJ investigative features prior to September 2023 can be found on the BINJ website.
