Saturday: Gun Crisis Philadelphia meetup at BarCamp NewsInnovation 2013

Last year, we introduced the Gun Crisis Reporting Project to Philadelphia’s most progressive journalism community at BarCamp NewsInnovation 2012.

Tomorrow, at least one of us will return to discuss impact, lessons learned, the challenges we continue to face, and the opportunities for anyone interested in leveraging digital journalism to bring about social change.

Because of the unconference structure, we can’t say what time we will present, but at least one of us will be around all day and there will be valuable sessions in every other time slot.

Track us down @guncrisisnews on Twitter or via Facebook/guncrisis. You can reach me directly via email using
