Across the Americas, organized crime touches the daily lives of almost everyone in the region. The criminals not only enrich themselves at
the cost of others, they corrupt governments at the very highest levels and feed systematic human rights abuses. And right now, democracy is
under siege by organized crime and its crony allies. The pandemic has also played into the criminals’ hands and opened the door to corruption and criminal governance
For ten years, InSight Crime has exposed these criminals and corrupt politicians, as well as the security forces, judicial operators and businessmen who support them. In fact, studying organized crime is all we do—all day, every day. And, if you believe our mission to be
important, we would like to ask you to help us.
We are a non-profit organization. Every penny you give will go towards us fulfilling our mission: to deepen and inform the debate about organized crime in the region by providing regular reporting, analysis, investigation and policy suggestions on how to tackle the multiple challenges it presents.
That takes money because our work is not done from 30,000 feet. We walk the ground, we speak to the people who live, day-in day-out, with organized crime. We speak to the victims. We speak to the crimefighters. We speak to the criminals. The work is often dangerous, and we are not popular with corrupt officials.
Your support will help us fund the organization and the investigative journalism that appears on our public-facing website. You can help us keep it free. These issues are too important and must be shared as openly and as widely as possible. In other words, your assistance helps
us dissect these problems and offer solutions to them. Every little bit helps.
Thanks for reading us, and thank you for your support,
Steven Dudley & Jeremy McDermott
