    Lex Hudson of United by Media Profiles Things From Another World

    United By Media is a Portland-based non-profit organization that empowers people with developmental disabilities with a media voice and a platform for community involvement. By pairing them up with a camera, media assistant and press pass, United by Media helps people with developmental disabilities become active members of the local media and explore their interests. Since its inception in December of 2010, the organization has talked to Lewis Black, Lyle Lovett, Amy Roloff and Bob Eubanks, among many others. However, their work is about much more than talking to celebrities and covering exciting local events. It is about developing and maintaining meaningful long-term relationships.

    Lex Hudson, one of the United by Media reporters, has been enjoying science fiction and comics his entire life. His goal is to open his own comic and card shop, which would also serve coffee to make sure his customers can have a beverage and a snack during the long games of Yu-Gi-Oh! Recently, Lex sat down with Sean Wynn, the manager of our Milwaukie store, to talk about their mutual passion for comics, the keys to running a successful store and much more.


    Things from Another World is excited to have had the opportunity to host United by Media in one of our stores and to support the important work this organization is doing. We are looking forward to our continued partnership.

    You can learn how you can support this organization and see more interviews on their website.
