Storytelling is important. So is transparency.

Here you will find summaries of what we are seeing and hearing from our Community, what insights we are gleaning and how they are influencing where we prioritize our efforts.

We are also holding space here for the reports of our collaborators who have engaged with us to craft experiences that are unexpected in the context of a bureaucracy.
