We're working to make Chapel Hill and Carrboro more vibrant, accessible, fun, and sustainable.
Where we are now: A daily group blog covering civics and news in Chapel Hill and Carrboro that reaches thousands of people across our region.
Reckoning with our past: A crowdsourced project researching and reporting out the history of Chapel Hill's exclusionary covenants.
Why are you called Shameful Nuisance?
Working to change a community to make it more inclusive and accessible is hard and there will always be people who fight against these changes. One of our most vocal detractors called us a "shameful nuisance" on social media, and we thought the name fit us: We know this work makes people uncomfortable, and that won't stop us from pushing forward and advocating for a more inclusive, kind and sustainable community. Shameful nuisance, to us, means causing the good trouble that pushes Chapel Hill and Carrboro forward.
