On this day after the first presidential primary, we wanted to let you know about an exciting project we’re involved with called Groundwork, organized by the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University. Through radio stories and web features, it examines “the current state of American democracy—how people solve problems, make decisions, get things done—in six diverse places across the United States.” Homelands’ Jon Miller is part of the team, covering the debate over hydraulic fracturing (fracking) in one small town in central New York. You can read about Jon’s assignment and see photos and video on the project blog.
