The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting is an American
news mediaorganization established in 2006 that sponsors independent reporting that other media outlets are less willing or able to undertake on their own.

The Center solicits welcomes proposals for reporting projects throughout the world, with an emphasis on issues that have gone unreported, under-reported or mis-reported in the
mainstream American media. The Center's director is former Post-DispatchWashington Bureau Chief Jon Sawyer.
