Building community through online information sharing: what are your ideas?
Category : Uncategorized
Do you ever want there to be a website with a listing of all of the local animal rights groups, events, and volunteer opportunities?
I’ve been to countless events and been in even more conversations with people where this subject comes up. Many people want to see some sort of centralized information hub where events, resources, and local organizations can be listed.
The next in our A Powerful Voice Animal Rights Community Dialogue series will be focused on this idea.
We are hosting this conversation to talk about different ideas for such a website. Everybody has different ideas and insight into how it could be built and what it could do.
The hope is that if people from all across the local animal rights community come together we can create together a set of ideas and recommendations for anyone who might want to build a website like this.
The actual outcome of this event will be a document that potential developers can use. This document will be publicly available for anyone to use – and I hope that people are inspired to use it.
So, if you are someone who might use this sort of website, an organization that might want to list your events and contact information, or a developer interested in creating an online animal rights information hub, please consider attending this dialogue.
Beyond the discussion, though, you’ll have a chance to meet and talk to other people in the area who are interested in promoting animal rights.
Projects like this enable us to find ways of working together while still retaining our separate identities, projects, and objectives. We can all have different ideas about how to achieve a world where animals have their own rights and respected existence, but through interactions and projects like this we can become stronger and more effective.
I hope to see many of you there!
This dialogue series takes place at Radha Yoga & Eatery on Main Street (in Chinatown). It’s a beautiful space – a bright and soothing atmosphere for these conversations. Admission is a nominal $5, which helps to cover the costs of room rental, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
