Just a quick note to say I’ll be speaking as part of Social Actions’ free “Using Facebook for Social Change<” webinar on Thursday, along with Susan Gordon, the nonprofit coordinator of Causes<, and moderated by Beth Pickard< and David Karp< of Firstgiving<.

You’re invited to join in a live and open text chat to discuss how you can use Facebook for social change. This is your opportunity to share experiences and ask questions about how people and orgs can do outreach, inspire action, and fund raise on the Facebook network.

I’ll be talking about some of the successes the Genocide Intervention Network has had< in using Facebook and Causes to engage its member base, increase the impact of advocacy campaigns, and raise (a little) money.

RSVP for the event, happening Thursday, Feb. 26, at 11 AM PST/2 PM EST.< (Note that if you’re not already a member of Social Actions, you’ll need to sign up before you can RSVP, but it’s free.)
