Hey family! Please welcome my lovely friend, @baronnarcveldt!! They are local and looking to get involved in the community.

Everyone, please give a huge welcome to @buttercat !!!
He's the only person I was able to convince to migrate from f*ckbook. He is a PDX organizer, and a long-time Internet Friend.
@slackz @garbados and myself are your admins, and we're all local activisties as well. We're running the instance voluntary co-op style, so if you'd like to get involved, once you get comfy, just let us know.
In the mean time, kick back, relax, and puff puff pass :joint:

OrgSpace

OrgSpace is a social media instance on the Mastodon network built by, and for, community organizers. We believe social media is a critical tool for political education, relationship building, mobilizing folks; however, facebook, twitter and other mainstream networks have opted time and again for profit and commercializing personal data regardless of the consequences.

Mastodon is a decentralized, but federated network. This means that when you join organizing.social, you get to interact with everyone you choose to on the wider Mastodon network; but you also get to see locally scoped content (from this instance) and help build a network particularly focused on building community and organizing those around us against oppressive systems and towards a society rooted in equity and global justice.

Setting up this instance has been a project of PDX Outreach for Justice, but we want this to be a global network of organizers and welcome moderators, admins, and engineers, and others who would be interested in contributing and shaping this process
