The Center for Public Interest Journalism contributes operational support to Broke in Philly, a new citywide reporting collaborative focused on economic justice in Philadelphia, the poorest big city in America.
And now you can read the inaugural edition of their free email newsletter: This Week at Broke in Philly.

Meet colleagues, ask questions and get ready to put your solutions journalism training into practice.
