Funded by a $4,750 October Quick Grant, this 12-episode podcast series will tell the stories of the Newtown community, reflecting on the impact of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting 10 years later. The focus is on the importance of resilience, connection, and healing as a community. WSHU Public Radio is connected with the community of Newtown and is privileged to tell this story in their words.
Fairfield’s WSHU General Manager Rima Dael says, “We are grateful to receive our first grant from Connecticut Humanities and honored to be the first podcast recipient of humanities funding. WSHU’s mission is to provide our community with carefully researched and insightful coverage of important issues and events. The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting is one of the most consequential tragedies to occur in Connecticut. We must bear witness to this event, its impact on our Newtown neighbors, and its relevance in the school shooting epidemic in our country. Still Newtown is a nuanced, respectful podcast that honors the victims, survivors, and residents of Newtown. It encourages thoughtful discourse on critical issues such as school safety, mental health, and community activism.”
