Communities & Engagement Desk

The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Communities & Engagement Desk is dedicated to increasing representation and community visibility in The Inquirer’s reporting. In addition to its own reporting and community engagement, the team works with Inquirer journalists throughout the newsroom to better connect with communities.

Led by Sabrina Vourvoulias, senior editor, communities and engagement, the desk is focused on producing a regular cadence of published and experiential coverage that engages and serves Philadelphia’s underserved and marginalized communities. 

The team has focused on building non-transactional relationships with communities, with an eye to better serving them. The desk is committed to developing and sustaining diverse new audiences from within communities that don’t currently look to The Inquirer for news and information.
