This newsletter is free and your attention and concern mean the world but we have bills to pay.
We launched The Philadelphia Center for Gun Violence Reporting two years ago to explore the hypothesis that changing the way journalists and news organizations report on gun violence could prevent shootings and save lives.
We organized a community reporting project to shift power to people with lived expertise, a professional development program to support journalists already covering gun violence and a research collaborative which has been refining our focus by identifying harmful reporting practices and asking what the ideal, most ethical and impactful reporting on gun violence might look like.
Now we are focused on implementing what we have learned, synthesizing our programs for maximum impact and sustaining the Center for years to come. We are proud of our progress and but the gun violence crisis only worsens and we need your help. Please consider making a recurring tax-deductible contribution today.
