From constant collaboration in 2023 to greater growth in the new year

We partnered with dozens of organizations in 2023, sometimes virtually but more often in person, to share our work and learn from each other how best to advance more empathetic, ethical and impactful reporting on gun violence and prevention.

During 2023, our team visited with:

• The Center for Media and Risk and SAFELab at the University of Pennsylvania • Transforming Narratives of Gun Violence at the Harvard Radcliffe Institute • The National Association of Black Journalists • Poynter Institute for Media Studies • The Online News Association • The Law & Justice Journalism Project • The New York Amsterdam News • Report for America • The Center for American Progress • The Stoneleigh Foundation • The Institute for Storycraft and Information Gathering at Tufts University • The Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication • The Logan Center for Urban Investigative Reporting • The Guggenheim Symposium on Crime In America • The International Communications Association • Mothers in Charge • The Schemel Forum at the University of Scranton • Pennsylvania Trauma Systems Foundation • The American Psychiatric Association • University of California San Francisco • The Council on Criminal Justice • Washington and Lee University • Medical College of Wisconsin • FOX 29 News Philadelphia • The University of Colorado • The Ohio State University • The Philadelphia Inquirer • The House of the Living • The Full Frame Initiative • Swarthmore College • NBC10 Philadelphia • Temple University • Emerson College • WURD Radio • WHYY News • The Trace • Power 99 & WDAS
