Crowdsourcing Change: Applying the Social Web to Some Philly Nonprofits

On August 6, Philly Net Tuesday will feature our signature “Crowdsourcing Change” format. Here’s how it works: Two or three local nonprofits share how they’re using online marketing and social media/networking to achieve their goals and objectives. Then the crowd (that’s you!) participates in a facilitated discussion about how each organization might use the social web to even greater effect.

We're pleased to announce that the two local organizations eager to receive the wisdom of the crowd will be:

The Support Center for Child Advocates (http://advokid.org, Twitter: @PhillyAdvoKid), which advocates for victims of child abuse and neglect in Philadelphia with the goal of securing a permanent, nurturing environment for every child. Presenters will be Moira Mulroney (Director of Development & Communications) and Tracy Buchholz (Communications Associate).

The National Constitution Center (http://constitutioncenter.org, Twitter: @ConstitutionCtr), America's first and only museum devoted to the U.S. Constitution, its ideals and its legacy of active citizenship. Presenters will be Lauren Saul (Director of Public Relations) and Sarah Fergus (Public Relations Manager).

NOTE:  Unfortunatly, the Agatston Urban Nutrition Initiative had to withdraw due to a scheduing conflict.  We hope to have them participate in a future Crowdsourcing Change event.

The event will be held at the Friends Center, 1501 Cherry Street.  Doors open at 6:00 PM on the evening of Tuesday, August 6. Light fare will be available, and RSVP’s are appreciated for planning, but not required. Not in Philly? Or can’t make it downtown? Watch the live Internet stream at http://phillynetsquared.org/live, and contribute your questions and comments via our Twitter backchannel (hashtag: #phlnet2).

Whether you’re a social media expert or an interested citizen your perspectives and opinions are welcome and valuable. So, come and join the crowd with your questions, insights and reactions, and help these local organizations more effectively use social tools to achieve their important objectives. This is a great learning and sharing opportunity – not only for the presenting organizations, but for all participants!

Thanks to the American Friends Service Committee for sponsorship.

    Unfortunatly, the Agatston Urban Nutrition Initiative had to withdraw due to a scheduing conflict. We hope to have them participate in a future Crowdsourcing Change event. But we'll have plenty to talk about and learn with the Support Center for Child Advocates and the National Constitution Center.
