The Border Center for Journalists and Bloggers is a non profit organization based in Edinburg, Texas, dedicated to promote investigative journalism, safer practices, new technologies and boost innovation and cooperation across borders.
BCJB also focuses in the creation of a binational network of journalists at both sides of the border and the promotion of investigative reporting, adoption of digital tools, data mining and visualization, as well as the production of high quality multimedia stories.
We organize security workshops for border journalists who work in hostile environments and cover zones rife with organized crime, violence and extreme poverty. We help them to reduce risk by improving their editorial skills and promoting the use of security protocols to cover immigration and human trafficking, education and health issues, local governments, criminal justice, crime and corruption.
In a partnership with the International Center for Journalists, BCJB has launched the Mexico Border Investigative Reporting Hub to promote investigative journalism and data journalism on corruption issues, among border reporters, independent media, and civil society organizations.
