Your organization or cause -- what are you passionate about?

My organization is New Avenue Foundation Our mission is to create meaningful lives for people with disabilities. We are parent-led. We see several key areas where there is great need: social justice, employment, community inclusion and housing alternatives. We seek families who have these same concerns in order to join forces to try to solve them. Other causes include social justice, timebanking and use of alternate currency, and all causes that involve people with disabilities (disabilities being defined in the broad sense including physical, mental, and development disabilities, as well as returning veterans, battered women, and the homeless).

Have you used technology for social change? If not, do you have plans/ideas/dreams about how you want to use it?

I've volunteered for many NPOs to help them with their tech needs, especially building websites. My skills are with WordPress. I've been a member of Philly NetSquared since it's inception.
