Measuring TPF's Impact
We randomly surveyed a third of our members about how, if at all, TPF has changed the way they consume media and engage in conversation.
“I have been more outgoing. I didn’t really attend in-person workshops about journalism and writing during the pandemic. It was mostly online. But through TPF, I attended my first in-person workshop called Poetry by the Moon when the virus situation became a bit better. It was exceptional, and I was able to represent Robert Frost and appreciate other people’s work.”
"Being a TPF member has made me see the world around me differently.”
—Megumi Iwai-Louie, Manager
—Benjamin Barham-Wiese, Outreach Team Director
“I now question everything (within reason) instead of just blindly taking in every headline.”
—Ifeoma Okwuka, Press Team Deputy Director
“Working with the press team has definitely improved my writing skills and pushed me to be more active in political discourse outside of TPF. For instance, joining TPF gave me the confidence to enroll in the Introduction to Politics class at my school.”
—Amen Dilawar, News Team
—Sofia Williams, News Team Deputy Director
"Since joining TPF, my worldview has fundamentally changed for the better."
“Before, I was kind of scared to talk to peers about politics.”
—Maybelle Keyser-Butson, Advocacy Team Director
