Better reporting for a better St. Louis
The River City Journalism Fund is new, but already making a splash in St. Louis by commissioning deeply reported stories that illuminate the region. We’ve been cited by the AP, had our work discussed on St. Louis on the Air and seen our stories attached to briefs filed with the Missouri Supreme Court. And we’re only just getting started.
We believe that by hiring good journalists and partnering with local publications that make those stories freely available to readers across St. Louis, we can help to educate the public and shore up our democracy.

The Riverfront Times, the Jewish Light and St. Louis Public Radio are partners in the “Shadow of Death” series, which debuted in November 2022.
Since the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976, 92 Missourians have been put to death. Thirty-five have been Black, 56 white and one Native American. They’ve come from across the state — from tiny Maries County (population 8,432) to Kansas City and St. Louis.
But no county has sent more people to the executioner than St. Louis County.
Started by Before Ferguson Beyond Ferguson, the STL Equity Matters newsletter shines a light on how race is lived in our region — and shares the stories you need to be reading to understand St. Louis.
