Better Gun Violence Reporting

Better Gun Violence Reporting Summit

We’re here to help journalists find a more diverse selection of expert sources, identify evidence-based responses to violence, develop strategies for community engagement, find inspiring past reporting, critical data and whatever resources they need.

The Summit

Shortly before the pandemic, we organized the inaugural Better Gun Violence Reporting Summit at WHYY in Philadlephia. Nearly 250 journalists, researchers, clinicians, officials and community representatives attended from across the nation.
