What is Vngle?
An outlet for documenting “various angles” on culture and underrepresented stories across America.
Our mission: to help strengthen America’s union by highlighting regional and local stories that go underrepresented.
By giving proper perspective and cross-cultural consideration to communities,
Vngle serves as a medium to understand different views on life in the USA.
Through working with community members, we act as a citizen media alliance dedicated to instilling pride, respect, and accountability into every community.
Our work is a response to the rising polarization in America.
It all started with this guy:
Blake is from Atlanta, Georgia and cares about making society better. He started Vngle, to show different perspectives on life and culture in America from region to region.
This all started from a voter registration trip to Ferguson, MO.
In going door to door, Blake began asking locals of Ferguson what it was like to live in the city. He found many of their experiences shocking.
Their stories revealed that the conditions of the city had deeper roots than the broader public had not been exposed to.
That led Blake to wonder why so many of their stories were unheard, and if local communities across America were underrepresented too.
That curiosity led to Vngle.
In being faced with so much social unrest in America, the [Where We Are Now] docuseries was started to jumpstart our operations by highlighting America’s cross-cultural conditions from different regional points of views.
Our goal with this project is to help create a public conversation around the real conditions that persist in communities around America.
“I ask for your support in sharing this work and helping Vngle to become a safe haven for collective consideration and national togetherness.”
