ABOUT THE NAME:
Founder Will Coley chose the name “aquifer” for many reasons: First, it honors the memory of his maternal grandfather who was cofounder of a well-drilling company in North Carolina. “Pappy”, as he was known to his family, often spoke of God’s amazing gift of vast underground aquifers, layers of water-permeable rock.
This image also conveys another aspect of Aquifer Media: the potential of directly tapping into the creativity and experience of communities and social networks. In today’s media world, there are new powerful tools for advocates and organizers to challenge injustice, build the power of communities and realize new opportunity.
