South Side Free Press: Launch Party
PEN America Member Amy Bernstein created a local media guide featuring the personal experiences and voices of Framingham community members, representing Framingham at a moment of both civic and demographic change this past year. The project and newspaper demonstrated ways in which media and press freedom can facilitate engagement around specific civic and advocacy issues with a focus on media engagement for Framingham’s growing immigrant community.

This event was made possible through a grant from PEN America’s Press Freedom Incentive Fund, which supports projects that underscore the vitality of journalism through the impact it has on a range of local issues.
