Online neighborhood forums making an impact in Minneapolis

Here’s a touching and inspiring note from NCDD member Steven Clift, founder of E-Democracy.org…

I am in the middle of swarm e-communication, where thanks in part to a 500+ person neighborhood forum we host – http://e-democracy.org/poho, hundreds of people have been organized to come a vigil tonight in a local park after a terrible series sexual assaults in the area. See the note from the victim to the forum at http://bit.ly/i0Yb8R

The vigil:  www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=120942287969348

And press about the forum+: www.startribune.com/local/111014214.html

Everyone here is a neighbor somewhere, I encourage NCDDers to use your skills to create a space for your neighbors online because if you don’t do it, who will? Grab some tips at http://pages.e-democracy.org/Starting_a_neighbors_forum. Then join your peers here: http://e-democracy.org/locals
