Building community through online information sharing: what are your ideas?

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,

Month-long online humane education course
