In August of 2017, acclaimed Swedish freelance journalist Kim Wall was tragically killed while reporting on the UC3 Nautilus, a privately-built submarine, in the bay of Køge, Denmark. Her case is still under investigation.

Kim was a rising star on the international reporting scene, with works published in Harpers, The Guardian, New York Times, Foreign Policy, Vice Magazine, The Atlantic, among other publications. Aside from her top-notch journalism, Kim was beloved by her peers and friends and known as a warm, generous, talented, and relentlessly curious colleague and friend.

Despite the devastating news, Kim’s family and friends immediately established The Kim Wall Memorial Fund to honor Kim’s legacy. Through crowd-funding efforts and moving video tributes, Kim’s family and friends raised over $100,000 in support in just the first month. The outpouring of support has brought them closer to their goal of $200,000 which will ensure The Kim Wall Memorial Fund will launch as early as 2018.
