We are all doing what we can to stay home and flatten the curve while also supporting essential workers and small businesses and lending a virtual hand where we can. Stories abound about the extraordinary things community members are doing in this unusual time to help others. At the same time, we are trying to keep ourselves sane and healthy during social distancing and stay-at-home measures.
Staying connected while staying home is critical for the wellbeing of our families and communities. That’s why the National Conversation Project and Aspen Institute’s Weave: The Social Fabric Project have launched the #WeavingCommunity Challenge – sharing ideas and stories about how people across the country are staying connected in their communities during coronavirus. You can take part by #WeavingCommunity today!
