Resources for Social Change

When you create a blog, or a forum post, or a group posting on the website, you have the opportunity to select a group that the post is relevant to. The idea is that the members of these groups will automatically get an email that let's them know what was posted, and gives a direct link to the post. This group is a ROOTS Workgroup, which means that it identifies itself around a particular body of work.

We will use this opportunity to look at the C/APP projects currently underway in Baltimore, MD. Bring up questions, concerns, successes and frustrations. Hope has agreed to moderate this online discussion. This discussion board will supplement other conversations via phone and face-to-face. Please let me know if there are any logistical issues accessing this discussion forum.
