Support PhillyCAM and Independent Philly Media Organizations
Six Philadelphia independent news organizations have come together for a pilot campaign to encourage citizens to support journalism’s role in the city and region’s growth and vibrancy.
The informal Philadelphia Independent Media Coalition was convened by Technically Media, the digital news organization that publishes local tech news network Technical.ly and social impact site Generocity.org. In addition to these two sites, which have recently launched individual membership programs, the Coalition includes Hidden City, The Public School Notebook, PhillyCAM and WURD Radio.
The Coalition, which is the result of an experimentation grant from the Lenfest Institute, will run this inaugural campaign during the month of February 2018.
The campaign encourages existing supporters and others to share examples of important work from these independent media organizations using the #SupportPHLNews hashtag. Additionally, interested parties can visit PH.LY to choose one (or more) of these sites to support via paid individual membership.
