Given that E-Democracy.Org is based in Minneapolis and many of our board members and volunteers are quite familiar with the I-35W bridge that spans the Mississippi – its safe to say that this tragedy has hit us pretty hard. Several of our volunteers and their families (including both Steve and myself) are confirmed to be safe. However, given the lack of information that currently exists about the casualties, it may take some time before we know just how close to home this tragedy has struck.
For local response to this event, stay tuned to the Mpls Issues Forum.
