In a virtual gathering on Wednesday night, August 12, Germantown community members told local journalists what they wanted to see in news coverage on issues of police reform.

Germantown Behind the Headlines: What Does the Future of Safety Look Like was organized by the Germantown Info Hub and Free Press. The Info Hub is a journalism news project in the Germantown section of Philadelphia. Our mission is to write stories about and for neighbors. Free Press is a group that advocates for reform and democracy in the media.

Thirty participants took part in the Zoom meeting, including journalists from WHYY, KYW News, The Inquirer, and NBC10. Neighbors and representatives from community organizations also attended, including Face to Face, Center in the Park and Philly Black Radical Collective.
