KALW Survey: The Spiritual Edge

 

The Spiritual Edge is a new reporting project from KALW that is bringing attention to the Bay Area's amazing diversity of religions, practices and beliefs. 

 We would love your feedback on the reporting we've done so far, and also hear from you on what you think we should cover in the future.  Your feedback will help us measure the impact of our reporting, and help shape the future direction of the project. 

Please take a moment with this short survey -- and thank you!
