Our presenters have been confirmed and flyers are being printed for the first Net Tuesday Philadelphia, on May 6! If you haven’t already, RSVP for Net Tuesday.
More and more nonprofits and others in the Philadelphia area are using the web and social software to foster social change. Now web innovators and social changemakers are getting together to socialize, share, learn from and inspire one another.
Featured Presenters for the May 6 Net Tuesday
For our inaugural meeting on May 6, we’ll begin gathering at 6:30 PM, and have two presentation/demonstrations:
- Friends for Peace (www.friendsforpeace.org), a project of the American Friends Service Committee (www.afsc.org), will be discussed by its creators, Aaron Crosman and Mark Graham. Putting faces on the diverse majority of people who oppose the Iraq war, FoP won the best integrated online and offline e-campaign award from the E-Philanthropy Foundation.
- Ivan Boothe, who works with the Genocide Intervention Network (www.genocideintervention.net) will give an overview of how the group has used social networking in a variety of ways — using Facebook to raise money, using MySpace to keep members engaged, and folding it all together to help create public pressure for anti-genocide legislation.

We’d like you to RSVP, but you should also feel feel free to simply show up — and bring friends! Note: We’ll have some light refreshments, but please feel free to bring your own food or drink. (This will be an informal gathering.)
Be a Net Tuesday presenter! We are always looking for people to share their stories about using technology for social change — promote your organization, talk about the innovative work you’re doing, and inspire others to follow your lead! Contact us if you have a story to tell.
