“Decades of tough-on-crime policies and the drug war on communities across the U.S. have not only changed prisons and courts — they have also shaped how people move through their neighborhoods, pay the bills, and interact with schools, hospitals, and work,” Rappleye said.

“We think these stories matter,” said Riordan Seville. “But to tell them, we need your help.”

The investigative reporting duo is raising money through Beacon Reader, a new crowd funding and publishing platform. By donating or subscribing, the subscriber will give them the time and resources to do good work in under-reported areas.
