Finding local ALLies
One of the first things an organizer's got to do is to find other people who are interested in getting organized. One of the primary purposes of the Organizing Committee is to help put you in touch with other ALLies. Here's some things that you can do to get started.
Get in touch with the Organizing Committee to ask for contacts — the first thing to do is to get in touch with us to let us know (1) where you are, and (2) that you're looking for local contacts. We know a lot of people, and the people we know know a lot of people. We also know anybody else in your town who has already contacted the organizing committee with a similar request. We'll put you in touch with anyone we can find in your area, and we'll be there to provide you with resources, advice, action ideas, and more. You can get in touch with us easily through the Organizing Committee web form.
Use the ALL map and other social networking tools to find other ALLies — there's a wealth of emerging web tools for finding people. One thing you should do right now (because it's easy, and potentially useful) is to put yourself on this Frappr map of ALLies around the world.
