Join the #ShareYourSkill901 movement

Everyone has skills and talents to share, no matter your education or reading level. #ShareYourSkill901 is a movement to celebrate the talents that make up Memphis. 

How can you join the movement?  

1: #ShareYourSkill901

There’s a million ways to share your skills, from getting a job as an auto mechanic, to baking a pie for your neighbor, but it all begins with telling people what you’re good at. 

The #ShareYourSkill901 movement wants to help with that. How can you #ShareYourSkill?

We were the people who were not in the papers.

We lived in the gaps between the stories.
