GCMLP Partner Weave News, founded in 2007, at St. Lawrence University, is grounded in the concept of citizen journalism: the idea that ordinary people can act as journalists by gathering and sharing information about what is happening in the world. Weave News seeks to fill in the deeper context surrounding important contemporary issues by weaving together voices, perspectives, and questions that are often missing from public discussions. 
 
Weave News is our first partner in Story of the Month, in which we will collaboratively link to an important story from partners and said partners will link to an important story posted on GCMLP. 
 
To inaugurate our Story of the Month, we offer “Aiding and Abetting Whiteness,” a story from November that sparked Weave’s newest series, accompanied by their call for contributors:  

Weave News seeks submissions on the experiences of students of color at Predominantly White Institutions (PWIs). The series, Surviving PWIs for POC, will publish a variety of perspectives on the day-to-day experiences of people of color, both inside and outside the classroom. The goal of this series is not to put POC pain on display for a white audience, nor to demand that people of color offer solutions to the uncomfortable situations in which white institutions have placed them. The goal of this series is to document the experiences of Black and Brown undergrads as they analyze the institutions around them. To learn more and share your experience, visit our submission page: http://www.weavenews.org/stories/2018/1/1/call-for-submissions-surviving-pwis-for-poc
