Day 2 Concurrent Session - Bridging Information Divides and Elevating Narratives: How Resolve Philly Does Community Engagement

Resolve Philly exists to challenge the field of journalism to be equitable, collaborative, and informed by community voices and solutions. As one of the driving forces behind Resolve Philly, our Community Engagement (CE) team directly engages with and broadens the visibility of communities who are not afforded the tools and mechanisms to elevate their own narratives.

The CE team takes a strategic, data-driven approach to community engagement, fostering meaningful partnerships that are impactful instead of extractive. Informed by their own lived experiences, the team acts as community navigators -- connecting disenfranchised Philadelphians with life-affirming and culturally-sensitive resources, creating pathways for community empowerment, and changing the way they interact with local news.

Learn about how lived experiences provide a thoughtful approach to community engagement, what it looks like to really lift up community voices, and one model for creating a direct and meaningful impact on historically disenfranchised communities.
