News and Resources from the Community
The California Endowment invited Aspiration down to Los Angeles to participate in a panel discussion on Social Media, Social Justice. The event was a wide-ranging dialog on how nonprofit organizations and campaigns can employ social media strategies to support social justice work and build healthy communities.
A video of the Q&A part of the event is available on the California Endowment web site.
Matt Garcia joins Aspiration as Community Manager for our Social Source Commons platform. Matt will maintain the SSC blog, engage users to learn how we can enhance the system to better serve their needs, and oversee community outreach for the project, working with the rest of the team to make SSC a more valuable resource for those looking for nonprofit software.
As anyone familiar with our work knows, Aspiration is passionate about delivering high-quality technology events to a broad range of social change communities and sectors. But we're usually so busy designing and facilitating the agendas that we rarely enjoy the opportunity to step back and reflect on either our methodology or the specific learnings and outcomes from the events themselves.
