The New Normal 2012: Get Connected!
New Normal 2012 builds on work begun by TCMA and the Twin Cities Daily Planet in 2011. The goal of “The New Normal: Deciding Community Priorities in a Downsized Economy” was to identify challenges facing Minnesota citizens and communities, and evaluate possible solutions. This year the focus is on action steps. Over the next six months, the Daily Planet will publish a variety of articles, interviews and issue guides related to these organizations and the issues they are working on.
Get Connected! is part of the Twin Cities Media Alliance's New Normal 2012 Project, an initiative funded by the Bush Foundation. The Twin Cities Media Alliance and Daily Planet are sponsoring a series of community "Get Connected!" meetings in partnership with approximately 20 Twin Cities organizations working for change on issues ranging from the environment, education and work to health care, transportation and immigrant communities. For the schedule of meetings and links to register, see the sidebar.
