“SW MPLS News” (new name to come soon!) is currently running a listening campaign to help figure out what the residents of Southwest Minneapolis want to create to fill in the news & information gap that the SW Journal’s closure left behind. This survey was initiated by two local individuals, Andrew* and Charlie**, and their interests have overlapped with the work that a group of neighborhood associations have also done (including the Kingfield Neighborhood Association) to figure out how they can work together to also fill the gap.
Since many of our goals align, and under the premise that more heads are better than fewer, we have begun to work together to build a community-centric replacement for the SW Journal. Your input matters, and they want to hear from you about what you think the neighborhood needs.
To make your voice heard, take this survey by Friday, February 23rd: https://swmplsnews.typeform.com/to/P8S4PfA9
*Andrew has spent his career helping newsrooms use technology to more effectively engage with and reflect their audiences and communities.
**Charlie grew up in Southwest Minneapolis, and even spent a summer delivering the SW Journal around the neighborhood.
