Russell Contreras has joined Axios as a justice and race reporter.
He’ll be covering the policies and agencies at the heart of the administration of justice and how it impacts people of color.
He started the new job this week.
Contreras previously spent 12 years at The Associated Press, where he covered immigration, issues around Latino civil rights, racial conflict in the American Southwest and the legacy of slavery and racial segregation in modern politics.
Before that, he also worked as a reporter for the Boston Globe and the Albuquerque Journal.
