A Platform for Community

On Thursday, March 22, Cathead Distillery in downtown Jackson (422 S. Farish St.) was bustling with activity at JXN Gumbo as J.J. Townsend launched his nonprofit community crowd-funding platform, Citizenville. During the event, participating community organizations gave presentations pitching their project for Citizenville, and attendees made $5 donations for a bowl of gumbo and to vote for their favorite presenter.
