Local news radio station WHYY is holding a forum this Wednesday on the present and future of Pennsylvania’s cities and towns. The forum follows the recent launch of a statewide reporting project Keystone Crossroads, led by WHYY and other local public news stations, which aims to explore major issues affecting municipalities across the state.

So far, the project has looked at everything from an epidemic crime in Chester to bicycle infrastructure in Pittsburgh. Certain themes have already emerged in the project’s coverage, such as the state of manufacturing, crime and pension reform.

The forum is an opportunity to add to this dialogue. Attendees will have the chance to talk about their communities among each other and with Keystone Crossroads Editor Naomi Starobin, who will briefly explain the project’s goals. The Penn Project of Civic Engagement will also organize small-group dialogues, and attendees will have the chance to videotape their advice for the next governor.

When: Wednesday, July 16 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM
Where: WHYY, 150 North 6th Street
Cost: Free
