Please join us for the CiviCRM MeetUp Thursday, December 15 5:30-7:30pm by registering today!

José Gonzalez will share how New York Communities For Change (NYCC) organizes its members and uses resources more effectively with PowerBase (an open source, Drupal over CiviCRM system) - embracing the idea that technology can be leverage in the fight for economic and social justice.

Through community organizing, direct action and legislative advocacy, New York Communities For Change (NYCC) members, a coalition of working families throughout New York State, work to impact economic and political policies that affect New York, but particularly low and moderate income communities.

We are also introducing the idea of  LIGHTNING ROUNDS (borrowed from the Drupal MeetUp). This will be an opportunity for community members to present brief, 10 minute explanations of novel and successful ways in which they've used CiviCRM.

Here is what we have planned:
