Hi! If you don't have much time - I'll cut to the chase - please take this short survey to let me know how 285 South can better serve you. Thank you!
At 285 South, I make it my mission to uplift stories that show the vibrancy and opportunities within metro Atlanta's immigrant communities, like the story of cross-cultural friendship behind Gwinnett County Public School's new halal burger, and to connect residents with the information they need, like how to apply for back pay from your employers and how to find culturally specific mental health support.
285 South is the only news publication in metro Atlanta bringing together its diverse immigrant communities (and the issues connecting it) - all in one place - so we can learn from each other, support each other, and our worlds can grow bigger because of it.
I already know this has started to happen. One reader told me they visited Plaza Fiesta for the first time, after reading about the importance of the complex for Hispanic communities here. Another donated supplies after reading about an Afghan family who recently arrived to the metro area. Several people told me they signed the petition to make Eid a school holiday after 285 South mentioned it.
285 South is free for everyone to read. And to help keep it free for people of all income levels, it needs different kinds of support.
This summer I'm launching a premium membership, which will give readers both the opportunity to help sustain 285 South as a free publication, and will provide more ways to get more involved.
But first, I need to know more about you. What are you loving (or not loving) about 285 South? In what ways would you consider getting more involved? What would you like to see more of?
I hope you can take a few minutes to fill out this survey so 285 South can learn how it can best serve you.
