In 2016, we started something completely new. Strong Towns signed up for the online discussion program, Slack, and it has brought the entire Strong Towns community closer together.
With Slack, we have a place for our members to connect with each other in real time to discuss everything from a recent article on our site, to a favorite book, to a frustrating city council meeting. We have members and staff active on slack all week.
We've had some truly meaningful discussions on this platform, and it has been a powerful place for members to advise, support and get to know one another.
Here's one member's perspective on how Slack has helped him connect with the Strong Towns movement:
We are here to spread the Strong Towns message and we want tools like Slack to be available to everyone who is interested in this movement. That's why we make it free to join. If you value resources like this and want them to continue to be available, consider becoming a member of Strong Towns today.
