hey pdx people!
the portland chapter of Tech Workers Coalition is meeting at 6pm this monday feb 11 at Cider Riot! come join us to talk about organizing the industry ✊
@garbados i have colleagues in from outta town and a work gathering at this exact time. Sorry not to make it (and for my limited involvement right now), but I so appreciate the work y'all are doing and would love to sync up / pitch in once my schedule eases up a little bit.
Thanks for pushing this nascent chapter comrade!
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
