***This blog post is part of a previously weekly, now monthly series titled #SignalBoostSunday.  This series will highlight organizations and social causes that are of importance and provide assistance to the Greater Atlanta area. ***

Before we get on with the first #SignalBoostSunday post of 2019, I just wanted to mention a change to the structure of #SignalBoostSunday posts going forward: In the past, I would publish a #SignalBoostSunday post every week. Going forward, starting with this post, I will no longer write weekly posts for this series. Instead, I will be writing them on a monthly basis. And so, each installment will be posted once a month, on a Sunday, in keeping with the name.

              Normally, when I write a #SignalBoostSunday post, the organizations featured are organizations  located in the Metro-Atlanta area. For this week’s theme, however, I thought it was a bit more important to highlight organizations that have extensive news literacy resources that are accessible by everyone regardless of location.
