Jenn Dize is the co-founder of Status Coup News, reporting on crises and injustices that impact everyday people. She has focused much of her investigative reporting on the Flint water crisis in Michigan. Along with Jordan Chariton, she knocked on nearly 500 doors in Flint, revealing improper lead testing practices in the state. This led Erin Brockovich to call for criminal prosecution of officials involved. Additional reporting for VICE has helped reveal criminal cover-ups and payoffs coming from former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder’s office, along with a damning picture of who knew what and when.
