PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Host Matt O'Donnell interviewed Shawn Mooring and Portia Fullard with the Lenfest Institute of Journalism's Every Voice, Every Vote program.

The program is designed to help fuel voter engagement for the Tuesday, May 16 primaries.

They discussed the collaboration of 50 partners, made up of Philadelphia media entities and non-profit organizations, that created tons of community-centric digital content and news articles that fuel their extensive website and resource guide.
