Video and Picture Sharing
You can post videos and pictures on GNH Community. Videos are increasingly becoming the medium of choice for nonprofits. You can post promotional videos about your organization, educational videos about your field and public service announcements. Every Tuesday we feature a video at the top of the GNH Community homepage and share it with our social media network. Check out the videos that have already been posted for ideas and inspiration, create a video, post it on You Tube or Vimeo and share it through a link on the video page. If you give us a couple of weeks of notice we can try to time the featuring of your video with a particular event or an awareness campaign. The best way to use the pictures function is to create an album. An album can be used to tell a story, to document impact or to show progress. We will gladly feature an album if you give us notice of its creation.
You can join groups created by members or create your own; this is a great place to meet people that share your interest and to ask questions. You may join as many groups as you wish. The creator of a group sets the parameters for membership. If you have a question about a group, please write to the owner (the person who initiated the group).Executive Directors and members with similar responsibilities are urged to join a special forum group created by one of your colleagues just for you:http://gnhcommunity.ning.com/group/executivedirectorforum.

A new LISC internship program is helping close opportunity gaps for HBCU students while introducing them to important aspects of the community development field. “This program is part of our work to address systemic racial barriers that keep young people from gaining the experience and connections they need to compete for good jobs,” said LISC President Denise Scott.
LISC has just been awarded four critical grants from the U.S. Department of Justice, totaling $8.25 million, to carry out a series of Community Violence Intervention programs. The funding supports proven school- and community-based partnerships that can prevent violence before it starts.
Shani Buggs, PhD, is a public health researcher at the University of California, Davis, and one of the nation’s leading experts on anti-racist methods for reducing gun violence in American communities. Here, Buggs answers our questions about outreach-based community violence intervention (CVI), a grassroots approach to quelling violence that is the subject of a comprehensive new research paper she and her colleagues authored in collaboration with LISC.
