In 2010, Amy Sample Ward had an idea to start an online group for community organizers working on social benefit projects. I soon became an active member and even took the lead organizing role (aka “cat herding”) for a time. 3 years later, this community is well-established and making great strides in helping strengthen communities all around the world.
I encourage you to take a moment to read the 3 year anniversary post by Julia Smith (which I am honored to be quoted in). And if you’re interested in learning more about this community here’s a bit more info on the group and how to get involved.
