Mission Statement

Temple University calls North Philadelphia home, but how much do we as students know about the community that surrounds us? Few are aware of what makes the community special: the history, the culture, and the people. Fourteenth Street wants to change that. As a student magazine, we aim to bring fellow students (and ourselves) out of the campus bubble, to explore and spotlight what makes North Philadelphia special, so that we’re not just members of the Temple community, but of the North Philadelphia community, too.
