It has been a while since I produced another episode of the Q2 Podcast. Well, there is a reason for that which I share here. Also, during this hiatus, I've done some deep thinking about PanVisio and where I want to take it. Here are 3 things I would do differently if I can go back and do it over again... Lastly, I share the future of PanVisio and the pivot I am making with the Q2 Podcast.
So, as some of you may or may not know, I launched a campaign in the last quarter of 2016. My goal was to help with a small to midsized tech needs of "30 Organizations in 90 Days Campaign".
In this episode, you get the behind the secenes breakdown on what worked and didn't work, and how you can apply it to your next campaign...plus, learn whether or not I hit my goal!
There is only 1 way to get show notes which include templates, examples, and source materials that I used to create the campaign...and that is by subscribing here: bit.ly/q2podcast.

More About the NSLDC
The National Student Leadership Diversity Convention is the largest national gathering of student leaders and campus based advisors to address the most critical topics of diversity and social justice challenging our campuses today. Through experiential workshops, keynote sessions, and round table discussions teams of students will explore various elements of diversity and how they affect themselves and their campuses. During the conference students will be led through facilitated workshops to develop a Campus Action Plan for a program or event that the teams selects to work on together on in order to bring back a piece of the NSLDC experience to their own campuses.
In this episode, I introduce an experimental format where I have a conversation with a guest in public in front of my own home. It is a symbol of taking the conversations back to the block where we all use to connect with neighbors and talk about issues facing our community.
We are joined by Marrita Richardson, who works in government and looking to make a splash in politics in the near future. It is a "popcorn topic" episode where we bounce around a lot and stumble upon some pretty interesting issues. I won't list them all out here but we finish off with this one: How do you talk to white people about racism? We explore how she defines it and how it informs conversations about it with those who might not understand the various interpretations of one of the most impacting words in our society today.
And, to make things interesting as a BONUS, I will be releasing an actual conversation I had with a young white female about racism and an interesting post she shared out of frustration when she got tired of being told, "she wouldn't understand what it is like to face racism in our society".
// NOTE: YOU CAN ONLY GET THIS BONUS CONVO BY SUBSCRIBING ON OUR EMAIL NEWSLETTER AT THE TOP OF OUR WEBSITE www.PanVisio.org! COMING SOON!
Again, a VERY experimental episode so please share and give me your feedback on what you think!

Reverend Ruben Austria joins us from Community Connections for Youth (NY). Here he breaks down how he landed in this work and why he believes "Incarcerating youth has been a dismal failure."
"Every dollar invested in putting youth through the juvenile justice system takes resources out of our communities. We are challenging juvenile justice systems to reinvest their resources in neighborhoods most impacted by incarceration to increase their level of partnerships with and financial support to neighborhood and grassroots organizations."
He also shares the ways we can develop effective community-based alternatives to incarceration programs for youth, reduce youth crime, and ultimately improve the long-term life outcomes for youth.
- The myth of juvenile crime rate
- How to short circuit the juvenile prison complex
- in school systems
- probation officers
- police officers
- and even how to work with prosecutors!
- What is actually working at CCFY and why it is working
- The success rate of the programs and alternatives
After hearing what Rev. Ruben had to say, and the success his organization has realized, I had to become a member on the spot...and I know you will too. Here is the link to donate and help them fight towards #NoKidsinCages. Please use this hashtag when sharing the episode.

In this mini-episode, Joed Lopez sits down with Felipe Luciano, former Young Lord and decorated poet, activist, reporter, and lecturer. In this previously unreleased interview, Felipe was gracious enough to spend just a few minutes before leaving to catch a flight. It is short but poignant. He calls out colleges and universities; churches alike to unite "spirit and scholarship" to meet the needs of our community. Considering the recently tragedies of Alton Sterlin, Philando Castile, and several police deaths, his message and keynote bonus (only found here: http://bit.ly/FELIPELUCIANO ) is eerily prophetic. While I share this with a somber heart, it is also filled with hope. Never have I seen so many people stand up and say enough is enough during these turbulent times. Enjoy - Joed
