2023 saw an increase in violence against journalists worldwide. At least 99 journalists were killed, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists, most of them in Gaza. As the situation for journalists deteriorated, we published more investigations than ever and underwent significant growth, which required us to structure our teams and double our workforce.

We expanded the SafeBox Network and investigated corruption, disinformation, and environmental crimes. Notable projects included the Rafael Project and the Bruno and Dom Project, highlighting the vital role of independent journalism in exposing critical issues. Also, the impacts of Story Killers—a far-reaching investigation into foreign interference in France that led to the indictment of three influential figures in the country—underscored the importance of a united journalistic front against threats to press freedom.

In 2024, we will continue to expand our activities through the publication of new investigations and the development of the SafeBox Network community, organizing workshops for threatened journalists in dangerous regions. In the coming months, we will also support our staff with new recruitments. If you wish to know more about our mission and work, you can read the 2023 annual report here.

Our efforts would not have materialized without the support of our recurrent and new donors: thank you for taking part in our journey. As a non-profit entity providing free access to cross-border investigations, Forbidden Stories relies on charitable foundations and contributions from supporters like yourself. Click here to donate!
