Accountability Lab is running Integrity Icon Philly in partnership with The Philadelphia Citizen, an innovative non-profit media outlet that combines solutions-oriented journalism with specific calls for civic action and WURD Radio, the only African-American owned and operated talk radio station in Pennsylvania. The other partners in this initiative are SEAMAAC and the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey.
The initiative aims to inspire a national movement—led by civil society, on the ground, online and through the media—to celebrate, encourage and connect honest public servants.
The aim is to bring together a broad, diverse group of organizations and media across the city to establish a network of support for Integrity Icon. Through their daily operations, the organizations will promote a city-wide conversation around integrity and accountability in a way that will allow for sustainability well beyond 2020.
