Ask Generocity: What do you want to know about poverty in Philadelphia?

Tell us what you want to know about how the social impact sector is tackling one of the city biggest problems, and we'll investigate as part of Broke in Philly.

How it works.

For the past nine months, Generocity has been a member of Broke in Philly, the 22-member reporting collaborative made up of newsrooms across the city that have committed to covering poverty solutions.

Here are a few topics we’ve written about as part of our involvement:

The collaborative has also hosted hackathons to generate solutions in North Philly, launched the forthcoming My Philly Neighbor series highlighting Philadelphians doing good deeds in their communities and created a resource map noting where people in need can find food, housing, public benefits and financial empowerment centers.

Now, we’re asking you what we should report on next.

From our Partners

Tell us: What do you want to see us investigate about being broke in a city with a 25.7 percent poverty rate? What burning questions do you have about what economic justice really means? What do you want to know about how the social impact sector is tackling one of Philadelphia’s biggest problems?

Ask some specific Qs via the form below and we’ll pick a few and dig deep to find the answer, then share it out in a reported story; Broke in Philly partners Billy Penn, PlanPhilly, Technical.ly and NBC10 are doing the same. We might even open a voting round when you’ll be able to vote on which story we tackle next.

We’re listening.
