I recently needed to collect some links about online organizing and outreach for a colleague. These are mostly pretty quick reads for the organizer-on-the-go.

Tomorrow a large coalition of activists is organizing a series of events in Second Life to raise awareness about preventing a war with Iran. I’m really excited about it and I will be there most of the day helping out as a media contact. This event also inspired me to add some Iran info to the virtual office for my organization the Fellowship of Reconciliation (seen at left).
There is a whole day of events, but if you don’t want to be there all day, please come and check out the keynote and opening rally at 11:45am EST. It will be at the Commonwealth Assembly Area which can hold over 300 avatars (a lot for SL!).
Full info about the day of events is below. Sorry to post the entire press release, but this info doesn’t seem to be online anywhere else.
