It’s time to be online!
August 12, 2008
Perhaps you’ve seen the great guest posts from Lewiston, Maine; Lynchburg, Virginia; and Memphis, Tennessee, at our DemocracySpace blog, or read about the way little Eveleth, Minnesota, is building community via its own blog. Or maybe you admired that big old $1,000 check that the Indianapolis Neighborhood Resource center took home from Denver as winners of our first YouTube video contest. And you know that a MySpace page or Facebook presence could help your program recruit younger volunteers and participants.
There’s no denying that the time has come to get your program online, but you could use some free help in setting up a blog, making a guest post at DemocracySpace, publicizing events at Facebook, or learning how to make a simple video. No matter what small steps you’re ready to take, Everyday Democracy online organizer Julie Fanselow is ready to help. Just or call (208) 859-9006 to get started and see how easy it is to put news of your dialogue-to-change program online.
No water cooler in August
We won’t have a water cooler live blog session in August, but DemocracySpace manager Julie Fanselow would like to know: What topics would you like to discuss at the water cooler in future months? If you have ideas, … and mark your calendar for the next water cooler - perhaps on a topic of your choosing - at 1 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, September 18.
Also, you can access the easy-to-read transcripts from all our past water cooler events . They are packed with information from your peers, from Everyday Democracy staff, and from noted authors and experts on such topics as youth civic engagement, building racial equity, organizing against poverty, and many more.
