Billy Penn at WHYY is a local news team with a mission to improve Philadelphia by reporting on and explaining the city’s political, physical, and cultural infrastructure.
Our goal is to connect residents — to useful and fun information, and to one another. We also believe we have a responsibility to our communities and society at large, to promote equity, to enable empowerment through education, and to embrace accountability in all forms.
Our parent organization shares this commitment. Read more about the core tenets of the WHYY Social Responsibility Program, and how we actively apply our beliefs through action. It’s how we live.
