There’s another kind of social media and it’s flyering. Is there a message of hope, solidarity, grief, anger, and/or love that you can help get onto the streets today? Can you please write it down on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper, scan it, and email it to me? I’ll post all of them and make them available for people to download, print, and hang up. It doesn’t need to be fancy. It can just be hand-written. Pictures, words, or both. Send to: firstname.lastname@example.org. THANK you.

The Flyers out in the World
So far I have been told that flyers are going up at Muncie Public Library, University of Chicago, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and elsewhere. If you hang a flyer, please consider sending me a photo, at the address above or @ohbendorf on Twitter/Instagram.
