Each step has been an experiment in how to build a directory that can keep pace with a movement, and play a role in strengthening it.  We're grateful to have Ethan's guidance on our board.  Solidarity NYC shows how a directory can play a central role in holding a mirror to a growing, complicated community and we look forward to learning from the NYC experience.</span></div>
