From 2015 – 2017, MAP supported NJ Platform, a media hub serving South Jersey. NJ Platform brought together a diverse array of voices and experiences in Camden, Atlantic City, and beyond. We focused on reflecting and amplifying community visions for change, informing people about the pressing issues that weren’t getting enough news coverage, and providing commentary on reporting from other news outlets.
This online effort was a collaboration that sought to amplify the voices of community leaders and organizations in South Jersey – by reaching out to municipal services, cultural organizations, community groups, and service agencies. We also helped communities build their ability to tell their own stories, represent their work in the media, and engage wider audiences. We built long-term collaborations and relationships, through co-producing media as well as offering training.
NJ Platform was funded by the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation.
