Thanks for your interest in using the Discord app to communicate with fellow businesses in Longfellow. The Discord app will allow you all to communicate in real-time via text, voice, and video, in the event of any emergencies - riots, tornadoes, fires, or whatever may come our way. It works on smart-phones and computers, and you can also use it through a web browser, so this will allow for communication between businesses "on the ground” so to speak as well as those in other locations.
LBA will not be moderating this app - we really just hope it can be an effective tool for the business community to connect with one another in times of need. Businesses in Longfellow have widely varying views on politics, policing, safety, etc. This is not a forum for ideological views, venting or promoting your specific business. Please use the app responsibly and respectfully.
Currently, there is a Discord group set up for Downtown Longfellow (Lake and Minnehaha area). We will also be adding other groups based on location.
We hope there will be little use for this, but if there is, it will be helpful to have a tool in place. Everything will go easier if we aren't all using this for the first time when something goes wrong, so please take a few moments to familiarize yourself with the app and how it works. Download the app and use this link to connect to the Downtown Longfellow Discord group: https://discord.gg/cyVryqZZDQ
