Boost Truth is a WHYY public service campaign with a goal of amplifying facts and expertise about the COVID-19 vaccine through events, information sharing, and community organizing. By partnering with our News and Information Community Exchange (N.I.C.E.) – a mutual-aid journalism collaborative made up of grassroots content creators – WHYY will actively combat misinformation and disinformation while providing communities the resources to do the same.

Across the city of Philadelphia, N.I.C.E. partners will host events – such as town halls and forums, as well as showcases, health fairs and parties – that offer the public free, quality programming and access to expertise and resources.
