Too many stories remain untold every day
All around the world, journalists face threats, arrest, and murder.
There are stories that corporations, organized crime groups and governments don’t want to see published.
Forbidden Stories has a mission:
bypassing any form of censorship by publishing these stories.
To achieve this, we offer journalists working on a sensitive issue a secure way to backup their work with us.
In case something happens to the journalist, we will be able to pick up the investigation, complete it, and publish it broadly thanks to our collaborative network of news organizations.
By protecting and continuing the work of reporters who can no longer investigate, we can send a powerful signal to enemies of a free press: even if you succeed in stopping a single messenger, you will not stop the message.

2021 Nobel Peace Prize
“All they want in killing a journalist, or in attacking a journalist, is to stop the story.”
Former editor of the Turkish newspaper Cumhuriyet
“It will send a very clear message to oppressive governments that if they touch a journalist anywhere in the world, many others will be ready to support and follow up their story.”
Azerbajani investigative journalist
“What you are suggesting is creating a newsroom for journalists who have no press freedom. You will get fantastic stories.“
Matthew Caruana Galizia
Maltese journalist, son of slain reporter Daphne Caruana Galizia
“We couldn’t allow our mother’s stories to die with her. They were too important. For them to be forgotten would have been like killing her twice.“
Mediapart‘s head of investigations
“The finest project of investigative journalism, in solidarity against censorship.“
“Now I know that Forbidden Stories will always have my back.”
2017 Pulitzer Prize winner
“Even if Forbidden Stories rescues just a handful of investigations that fall into a sort of limbo each time a journalist is jailed or killed, it will already be a great victory for citizens.”
Executive editor at Pulitzer Center
“By working together, journalists can make it harder for censorship to win. We’re proud to support Forbidden Stories.”
