Our Mission

Redacted Magazine was created for readers whose experiences, identities and ideas are often overlooked by the mainstream media. In the news media industry, there is a growing rift between establishment publications and emerging journalists who wish to challenge the status quo and prescribed notions of objectivity. Curated by journalists who are disillusioned by traditional journalistic standards, Redacted strives to publish stories that counter the dominant narrative of those in power. As the U.S. experiences upheaval and political polarization, we believe there is no better time to democratize information.

Redacted covers Chicago issues with transparency and a radical ethos. 

We invite our readers to join us in uncovering truth, dismantling the barriers between us, and listening to those making change.
