  • Rural and unincorporated communities
  • Advocates are missing
  • But culture is full
  • Multimedia doesn't work when there is no access to internet and little to no infrastructure
    • Print issues
      • Low tech
  • Community 1st content creation

Olivia:

  • Not going to wait for someone to come and help us out
  • Powerful platform for community
  • Strategies: (news) handouts and word of mouth
    • Build relationships
    • Approach with a listening mentality
    • Handle the story with care
    • Story is not yours even though you're writing it
    • Use connections and relationships to find leads
    • Bring the story back to the person
  • We should be the ones telling our own stories
