Broke in Philly
Broke in Philly was a collaborative reporting project on economic mobility and solutions reporting on poverty that ran from April 2018 through June of 2023.
By the end of the project the collaboration had grown to 29 partner newsrooms, working in six languages and had published more than 3,000 articles.
While we have formally ended this collaboration and won’t be posting new stories to the project webpage, our partner newsrooms continue to report on these topics because they matter to Philadelphians and journalists have built contacts and expertise over the years.
Broke in Philly is widely considered the gold standard for local collaborative reporting. The initiative has driven real impact in our city and our collaborative journalism model has been replicated worldwide.
