Our September 23, 2010 Meetup

Selected By:

Black Bear Lodge

274 3rd Ave, between 21st and 22nd St. New York, NY (map)

Selected by:

At (RED) we believe that social media can be used to make the world a better place. Come join representatives from (RED) in unleashing fresh thinking around how social media can raise awareness and create solutions for social issues. Specifically we'll be talking about how social media can be used to tackle (RED)'s mission of helping to eliminate AIDS in Africa. Here's some questions we can discuss to get us started:

• How would you use social media to spread awareness about (RED)’s efforts to help
eliminate AIDS in Africa?
• What’s more effective in helping fight AIDS in Africa – Twitter or Facebook?
• What can we do at the meetup to spread the word? Tweets using #socialgood day will be streamed on (RED)’s homepage.
• How can / should social media be used to raise awareness around social issues?
• How can the innovation, tools, and techniques be used by organizations and people to foster and inspire real change?
• What are the barriers holding us back from making significant changes?
• What social causes are getting it right and why? See you there!

    Sorry Angela
    couldn't make it tonight. Worked too late and too much to take care of from last night's storm.. I wish you luck though.

    Hi All, I'm finalizing the venue and will let you know tomorrow where the Meetup will take place - likely in the Chelsea area. The Brooklyn meetup looks great but I think we should represent Manhattan too! Thanks!

    Hello! Has a venue been chosen for this meetup? If you're interested in combining, there's a good size group meeting at Rebar in Brooklyn: http://www.meetup.com/Masha...­

    @AshmiNYC you're right - this event is free, free, free! The Sept. 20th event is paid, it's Mashable's Social Good Summit, in partnership with 92Y and the UNF. If you can swing it I highly recommend you attending that event as well. (RED)'s CEO Susan Smith Ellis will be speaking, along with Ted Turner, Chris Hughes, Annie Lennox and more - should be a very interesting day.
    -Angela Prout

    @Christina R. I think the paid event is on 9.20 at 92Y. This looks like a different one. @AshmiNYC
