Every other month, we spotlight a nonprofit using technology to enhance their mission. This event is very much a two-way conversation, so come prepared to share your thoughts, feedback, and experience on using the web for social change.

This month we're featuring Progressive Majority.

Progressive Majority's mission is to elect progressive champions. We accomplish this by identifying and recruiting the best progressive leaders to run for office; coaching and supporting their candidacies by providing strategic message, campaign, and technical support; prioritizing the recruitment and election of candidates of color; and bringing new people into the political process at all levels.

We are launching a new website that we hope will be more interactive for our users and candidates. We will be (hopefully) ending the discovery process and are looking for feedback on our plan.

Our sponsor for this month's event is Turner Strategies ( Turner Strategies is a public policy communications firm that provides services in cross-media strategy, community-building, and organizational and systemic change. Its MediaMorphosis discussion series explores topics and issues that illuminate the digital landscape and help nonprofit/advocacy organizations navigate and thrive in a digital world.
