Recommended Read/Listen: "A Mother and Son Talk About School Shootings"

I choose to embed the facebook post because the comments add valuable personal information to the story. I choose to share it this way to demonstrate the value of facebook and social media for civic engagement as well as non-profit media and audio storytelling.

An interesting note: I was introduced to Connie Shultz through facebook's algorithm. I was introduced to the word "algorithm" by a fellow music lover, whose partner is a retired music teacher.
 If you don't have time to read the comments, please just give a listen to the audio.

Nextdoor Adds Interest Channels

Nextdoor has added interest channels. 

It's a bit like their groups feature, with the following exceptions: groups are started by a neighbor where interest channels are set by Nextdoor. 
Neighborhood groups are limited to one neighborhood, while interest channels are across neighborhoods. 





Check it out! Change begins within and close to home.

Best,
