Internet entrepreneur Craig Newmark’s philanthropic foundation, Craig Newmark Philanthropies, known for funding the Craigslist founder’s longtime support of journalism initiatives, has given the Free Speech Center at Middle Tennessee State University a $25,000 gift to expand its programs and services.
The nonpartisan public policy center, based in MTSU’s College of Media and Entertainment, works to educate the public about the five freedoms they’re guaranteed by the First Amendment: speech, press, religion, assembly and petitioning the government.
The Free Speech Center’s focus is on high schools and colleges across the country, building understanding of the First Amendment through education, information and engagement.
“A trustworthy press is the immune system of democracy,” Newmark said. “Protecting American democracy is an all-hands-on-deck mission, and the Free Speech Center at Middle Tennessee State University plays a serious role.”
Established in August 2019, the Free Speech Center at MTSU’s full resources include the unique First Amendment Encyclopedia, the world’s single most comprehensive free reference work on the first item on the U.S. Constitution’s Bill of Rights.
The center also directs the nonpartisan, nonprofit 1 for All educational project, focusing on ensuring that every high school and college student in America fully understands the five freedoms of the First Amendment. Its initiatives, detailed at http://1forall.today, also build broad public awareness of the First Amendment’s continuing relevance.
“We deeply appreciate Craig Newmark Philanthropies’ support for our national First Amendment awareness and education campaign,” said center director Ken Paulson. “Truly understanding the First Amendment is the critical first step in preserving and protecting our most fundamental freedoms of expression.”
The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution prohibits Congress from making any law that establishes or restricts any religion, puts limits on speech or the press, or hinders people from peacefully assembling and complaining to or seeking help from the government.
Newmark, who began his career in the 1970s as a computer programmer, began what would become “Craigslist” in 1995 as an email distribution list to his friends, alerting them to events in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he still lives.
He established Craigslist as a web-based service the next year and added other classified advertising categories, then began expanding to other cities in the United States and Canada in 2000. The service now covers 70 countries worldwide and receives 20 billion-plus page views each month.
The site’s growth and revenues have since allowed Newmark to contribute millions of dollars to various causes, including voter registration efforts, military families, consumer privacy rights and women in technology.
His Craig Newmark Philanthropies foundation has also focused its funding efforts on journalism, donating more than $173 million to media initiatives since 2015.
Some of the Newmark recipients include ProPublica, a nonprofit New York City newsroom focusing on public-interest journalism; the St. Petersburg, Florida-based Poynter Institute, a nonprofit journalism training and research organization; and the City University of New York’s journalism graduate school, which now carries his name.

￼￼Human Resources Business Partner Jordana McCallum had never envisaged herself working in the arboriculture industry, but a temporary contract with Active Tree Services two years ago quickly opened her eyes to a sector she describes as both ‘exciting and ever-evolving’.
Jordana explains she had initially come from a hospitality background, and it was an industry she grew up in, courtesy of the fact her family owns and runs the Lonsdale Hotel south of Adelaide.
“It’s a traditional family-owned and operated pub that my dad has run for 40 years,” Jordana says.
“Me and my brother had a great childhood where we pretty much grew up in the front bar.”
By her teens, Jordana was working in the family business, serving customers. She also soon took on co-ordinating the human resources side of things while also completing a double degree in business and psychology.
Jordana says working in a family-run pub was an experience that afforded her a hardworking mentality while also providing a great insight into customer service.
“I’m really proud of what my family has achieved with the hotel, but my parents were always supportive of me taking whatever path I chose, and they encouraged me to spread my wings,” she says.
In 2019, that path saw Jordana working in agency recruitment, and it was here that an opportunity to work with Active Tree Services on a temporary basis arose. After only two weeks, she was offered a full-time job and hasn’t looked back since.
“I love the variety of this industry and the fact no two days are the same,” she says.
“It’s complicated, it’s exciting and it’s challenging, which makes it incredibly rewarding.”
Jordana started as a Human Resources Officer but was quickly promoted to her current position as Human Resources Business Partner.
The role sees her working with management covering South Australia, the Northern Territory, Tasmania, and the Fleet Department to provide advice and guidance on topics like employment law and managing underperformance and discipline.
“It’s a traditional HR generalist role, with vast amounts of variation within the work,” she notes.
“I come in once a verbal offer has been made to a potential staff member and assist management with all facets of the employee lifecycle.”
“I also look at things like human resources analytics including staff turnover, and initiatives like rewards and recognition in a bid to retain talent.”
Jordana says Active’s commitment to retaining valued staff involves offering competitive wages, while also ensuring people have all the equipment and support that they need to do their job.

One of my most used apps
As someone who is a huge scavenger, I LLVE craigslist. I could scroll for hours looking at all the random free stuff, the plants and animals for sale in farm & garden, the things people are willing to trade in exchange for ______ (whatever they’re looking for), and the different houses and apartments for sale. I also believe that all but one of the jobs I’ve ever had, I found on Craigslist. There’s something for everybody. When I found out they had an app, I was so excited. I finally don’t have to type in their site (just kidding, it’s bookmarked) & re-select my area every time I want to scroll through the site. I open it multiple times a day, and it’s the first place I look for almost anything. Thanks for the great app.
Finally an Official App!
Used CPlus for years. Glad they finally put out an official app.
-1 star for what's always been an issue with Craigslist, regardless of platform. Abuse and lax enforcement. Most people on there are fine, but occasionally you run into unhinged people, and there is no help or recourse. I understand it's a small (and often free!) operation, but there are solutions. At the very least, they should be scanning for ads which are substantially the same and not allowing them. The most recent abuser I got didn't like that I took 45 min to respond to his text and got it in his mind that I was a scammer. So he copied my entire ad, including pictures, and added "this is a scam" to it, in multiple places. The pics at the very least, particularly in the same city, should be enough to flag based off some hash and prevent them from posting. I emailed the contact us for faked ads and never heard back. I didn't get any responses to my ad for a week until I could flag it enough times from different connections and devices to have it removed. Not cool. Imagine for people who have their contact info revenge posted.
Easy to use and looks good, better than using CL on the browser. There’s easy tabs for navigating and you can easily manage postings and see which are active and renew with one click. Photos upload easily. Switching around photos to change which is the primary is MUCH easier on the app than in browser where you have to do touch screen acrobatics to move photos around. My only issue isn’t with the app but Craigslist in general and that’s the vague rules about pet posts and “free to good homes”, whether they’re allowed or not and there’s some algorithm that either deletes rehoming posts immediately based on certain words? or users are allowed to spend hours just flagging any ads that compete with their home-based animal rescue. Either way, the real victims are the animals that people end up abandoning because there’s no easy way to find good new homes.

Alexey was sitting watching his favorite sports channel; more than one bottle of beer was in the refrigerator.
