Community Storytelling

Community-Centered Journalism
Media Policy

The Greater Philadelphia region is a hub for grassroots media groups and projects that have deep roots in the communities they serve. At the same time, they don't have consistent access to resources that would help them grow and strengthen their organizations, support the important role they play in their communities, and give them equal footing with white-led/mainstream media organizations.

The Community Storytelling program supports work that amplifies voices, ideas, and solutions rarely heard in the media and tells complex stories with care and compassion. The program focuses on organizations and projects that use audiovisual multimedia tools to center voices from underrepresented communities.
