Press Coverage


Activists and leaders eager to revitalize Youngstown are portrayed in a new documentary film as low-key heroes fighting for the future of a city they love.

The Place That Makes Us is a look at Youngstown, Ohio, through the eyes of a number of young people who have bucked the trend of “getting out” and decided to stay in their hometown and fight for it.

WORLD Channel may need to change the name of its documentary series “America ReFramed” to “Mahoning Valley ReFramed.”

In developing a strategy to improve Youngstown’s housing, people were asked what is the most significant housing issue facing Youngstown today?”

“The Place That Makes Us,” a documentary that looks at Youngstown residents who are trying to make the city better, will premiere at 8 p.m. March 30 on the WORLD Channel and worldchannel.org.
