Join a new two-year, grant funded project in Pennsylvania to cover cities and communities across the state. Four public media organizations, including witf, are partnering on “Keystone Crossroads,” a new Local Journalism Center designed to focus on the root causes, human effects and possible cures of reversing the slow decline facing Pennsylvania’s urban areas.
