Witness LA and Spot.Us team up

The LA Justice Report will be a joint effort of Witness LA, journalist Celeste Fremon's blog, and the Spot.Us project that helps readers fund journalism they support. "The idea is to fund and investigate local social justice stories that we believe are far too important to be allowed to go unexamined," Fremon writes. "Our first story is called Follow the Gang Money: How is LA Using Our $25 Million?" She explains further.
