City Limits a Poverty Project started as a special year-long audio reporting project that examined the living and socio-economic conditions behind the rising poverty rates in Syracuse, NY. There are over 40 stories and conversations here to explore that focus on the many aspects and impacts of poverty on our community. From transportation and mobility to food insecurity and education, City Limits features the voices of the people who are on the frontline of the war on poverty.
Continuing in the City Limits tradition of intersecting storytelling and solutions-based journalism, City Limits 2 seeks to strengthen Syracuse through civic journalism that focuses on citizens’ concerns, encourages civic participation, improves public deliberation, and connects us all to community life. Taking a broader approach, City Limits 2 strives to bring shared community issues, concerns, and impacts into greater focus by taking the necessary time to fully explore topics for deeper understanding.
