This short film is part of Injustice Watch’s Essential Work project, a first-person storytelling series by young Black Chicago activists.
In an interview with Editor-in-Chief Adeshina Emmanuel, Josh and Rita discussed what issues they’re covering, and how they’re making sense of 2020.
2020 was an unprecedented year, and our reporting team worked to cover the courts, judicial elections, the movement against racism and police violence, and Covid-19. Here are some of our best stories this year.

Injustice Watch is excited to announce that reporter Carlos Ballesteros is joining our team next month. The Chicago native brings a knack for storytelling, a strong investigative skill set, and an intimate knowledge of the city to our newsroom. He starts on June 8. “Carlos’s talent—and his passion for covering underserved Chicago communities—are two big reasons why we wanted him here,” said Injustice Watch editor Adeshina Emmanuel. “I’m excited to see how he deepens our coverage of the justice system.”
Carlos arrives at Injustice Watch after two years at the Chicago Sun-Times, where he covered the South and West sides as a Report for America fellow.
