Those of us in Southern California rarely have the opportunity to enjoy a “snow day” so I thought I’d try and convey some of that excitement by sharing a video that the Hopewell Valley Regional School District in New Jersey prepared to have available should the need to declare a snow day arise. Given what I’ve been reading about the weather back east, there may be the need to rerun this a few more times.
We at San Diego Free Press love watching all kinds of video. Those short visual stories entertain, inform, and agitate in a way completely different from the written word.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
