Calling All Livable Streets Activists and Organizers

uncle_sam.jpgThe Open Planning Project (the producers of Streetsblog and Livable Streets Groups) is looking to enlist the help of neighborhood
activists, community organizers, and grassroots leaders to help us
build the next generation of online organizing tools.

Are you trying to organize for change in your neighborhood, town, or
city? Are you trying to take advantage of the internet to do so?

If so, we'd love to pick your brain to find out what tools and
techniques you're employing and how they're working for you. Our aim is
to create an online toolset that makes community organizing and
grassroots activism easier and more effective.

Simply filling out this form will be enormously helpful to us. We'd also like to have more in-depth
conversations, either in person or by phone or email. If you're interested, let us know. We're eager to
learn all we can about your goals, strategies, and challenges.

Or, go for it in the comments section.  Here's what we'd like to know:

    • What goals are you/your group trying to accomplish?
    • What tech tools are you currently using to further those goals? (to organize, recruit, mobilize, lobby, publicize, etc.)
    • Of those, which have been the most useful? The least?
    • What functionality do you NOT have that you would most like to have?

Thanks!
