South East Fort Wayne is the most diverse quadrant of the city. Home to a wide variety of cultures, languages, cuisines, and churches, its family-run restaurants and grocery stores will take you on a journey around the world.

From August-September 2021, this quadrant is the focus of Input's community journalism program called Voices of South East, made possible by support from the Foellinger Foundation.

For two months, Input will be producing weekly stories that generate conversations around assets, challenges, and opportunities in South East—as determined by residents themselves.

Voices of South East is part of Issue Media Group's national On the Ground series. Previous On the Ground programs have taken place in Fort Wayne, Memphis, Tampa, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Cincinnati, Flint, and Detroit.
