InvestigateWest is pleased to announce the addition of two board members who bring a wealth of experience in journalism, storytelling, community engagement and volunteerism to the nonprofit newsroom.

Diana Huynh and Joshua Trujillo were enthusiastically voted onto the board earlier this month as part of InvestigateWest’s ongoing effort to grow and deepen the impact of its change-making investigative journalism.

“We are so pleased to have Diana and Joshua join the board,” said Brant Houston, the Knight Chair of Investigative Reporting at the University of Illinois who became InvestigateWest’s board chair in January. “Together they strengthen us in the areas of development and journalism and are great additions to our team.”

InvestigateWest is a nonprofit news organization dedicated to investigative journalism for the Pacific Northwest. Founded in 2009, the Seattle-based newsroom covers a range of topics including public health, the environment, youth, racial justice, voting and government accountability. Over the years, its reporting has prompted reforms and more than a half dozen different state laws protecting the environment, workers and foster children.
