The South Jersey Information Equity Project was conceived at the Center for Cooperative Media in late 2019 through a partnership with the Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists. Its goal is to address media inequity in South Jersey, specifically by seeking to improve the quality and quantity of news and information produced by and for communities of color.
The next phase of the project will seek to support and elevate Black media makers specifically in Camden, Gloucester and Burlington counties — including those who identify as journalists and those who do not — and connect them with resources, funding and platform partners to share their work.
The goals are to amplify stories by and for the Black community in our three target counties, build trust and community connections through media making, and strengthen the networks between Black journalists, media and communities in South Jersey.
