This paper continues to be a community paper…. remembering beginnings:
Before there was a FLINT: Our Community, Our Voice, a back room of Neighborhood Engagement Hub (it was still Salem Housing then), sometime in 2010, 2011, a variety of folks busy in Flint-that is, working in and leading or ‘pushing’ for change in one of many ways, were engaged in thoughtful, sometimes loud, determined discussions.
These discussions were about getting other folks to know about and be involved in problem-solving or sharing information or advocating. Most importantly, knowing about what is going on.
So Ofc. Tanya Meeks, Charles Winfrey, Bill Hammond, Raynetta Speed, Kathy McGaughy, Carma Lewis, Jane Richardson, Christopher Frye and others “discussed” themselves into this newspaper…and here we are in our 13th year.
Thank each and every one of you!
