The engine room, a tech-for-advocacy consultancy, is working with Oxfam Novib to catalog every organization, meetup, event and community that supports advocacy movements with technology questions.
The problem: we know support resources exist, but on this fast moving, context-dependent issue, who is the most relevant and trustworthy for you? We’re answering that with a directory (where you will be able to search for local or issue specific resources) but going further than just contact information to add information on reputation and relevance.
To do that, we need input from people like you.
First to take the survey and then to spread the word about it to your peers.
Things you can do that are helpful:
- Forward the survey to your coworkers
- Post about it on your blog
- Share the link — bit.ly/socialtechcensus — on Twitter, Facebook and other networks
- Email it to friends and allies
We’re making it super easy by providing quotable language.
For blogs, quote this:
The engine room’s Social Tech Census launched this week with the goal of identifying and mapping every organization, project, event and community that provides technology support for social advocacy groups worldwide. Help make sure the Social Tech Census is as good as possible (and reflects your own experiences and work) by filling out a one page survey. We will be accepting new entries until May 1st.
Sharing the link to the survey — bit.ly/socialtechcensus — to your personal networks is a simple, high impact way to support this effort.
For Twitter/Facebook/etc, share this:
Do you work in advocacy? Do you use a computer? If so, take this survey so we can have better tools. bit.ly/socialtechcensus
Thanks for your help! Stay tuned as the results start to come in – we’ll be posting them regularly on this blog.
