This victory for working people is also a victory for Moms Rising, one of the most nimble and effective organizations in the Salsa user community (anyone at last June's user conference probably remembers their presentations). MomsRising has worked this legislation hard over the past two years, including one of the coolest twists on write-your-rep that we've seen: when Sen.

Wired for Change makes the Washington Post!Submitted Tue Jul 22 2008 09:43:00 GMT-0400 (EDT) by Charles Lenchner
Our friends over at Wired for Change were mentioned in the Washington Post on Monday. The article, "Liberal Bloggers Brace for Victory," covered the left-wing blogosphere and the 2008 election. Here's a snippet:
This past weekend, those same types showed up, plus tech firms such as
Wired for Change, hawking an online product called Salsa that helps
groups engage people through e-mail lists. There's no denying that the
gathering has crossed the mainstream threshold when swag bags, complete
with El Sabroso Salsita salsa chips, were handed out alongside condoms
from the Center for Constitutional Rights.
Congrats, WFC! You can read the whole article at http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/07/20/AR2008072002191.html?sub=AR.

Talking Tech, Talking Change: DIA users meetup in LASubmitted Wed Jun 25 2008 11:30:00 GMT-0400 (EDT) by Kip Williams
Last week, David and I closed up the San Francisco office and headed down to LA. On Friday, we met up with organizers who are using Salsa and held the first ever DIA SoCal Users Forum.
We started the agenda with a demo of the new Actions 2.0 tool, and then folks shared questions and stories from their own adventures in online organizing.
Check out this video from the day.
