Corey Johnson, Tampa Bay Times
IRE empowers me by providing the most invaluable investigative training and mentorship in the world. Journalists who dream of big ambitious public service turn to IRE, and the organization repays that trust year after year without fail. How do I know? Because I’m in that number. And so are many of my friends.
