What We’re Reading…2/12/16

“What We’re Reading” is where we share articles and posts that have impacted our contributors in one way or another.  If you’ve read a great article that is worth sharing, send it over to Aaron.

Tulsa

Great story about a new cafe in downtown Tulsa that is serving up hope and food. They should open at the end of this month.

Here is an interview with one of our 918 contributors, Ashley Philippsen. Read more about her work with Lead North.
