Join us; its free! ..Seeking solutions Monday evening at Temple Journalism

In January, the Philadelphia chapter of the Online News Association got together to get to know Philadelphia Reentry Reporting Collaborative.

On Monday evening, ONA-Philly is visiting the Department of Journalism at Temple University.

But as it turns out, at least two of the speakers will address issues related to our project.

 

Prof. Magda Konieczna

Prof. Magda Konieczna will discuss how, as mainstream journalism wanes, the innovators behind a group of news nonprofits are attempting to fill the gap by providing the kind of quality information that is essential to our democracy. She will also talk about her book project, which explores the emergent behaviors of sharing and collaboration that allow them to do so.

Konieczna has been researching the reentry collaborative and will focus the final project of her Entrepreneurial Journalism class this semester on sustaining such an organization — using us as a test case.

 

Prof. Jillian Bauer

Prof. Jillian Bauer will discuss why she is teaching a solutions journalism class focused specifically on addiction reporting.

In this special topics course — Covering Addiction Through Solutions Journalism — a large group of students from Temple University’s Department of Journalism in the School of Media and Communication are spending a full semester on in-depth, long-form reporting on addiction solutions.

 

All are invited!

Deaf inmates need criminal justice reform and resources

Philadelphia jails are failing deaf inmates. Here’s what advocacy groups are doing about it – Generocity Philly

In Sept. 2011, officers from the Philadelphia Police Department (PPD) found 20-year-old “Mr. Lee” in the passenger seat of a stolen vehicle. Officers arrested him and drove him to the 15th District Precinct in the Mayfair neighborhood of Northeast Philadelphia. During the ordeal, Mr. Lee’s glasses fell off and were discarded.
