Action Groups are live!

by Elise Hoffberg on May 1, 2014

Action Groups are live, and ready for you to start one.

When we first shared this whole idea with you, we described those two people looking out their windows, dreaming about a garden below. Now we can start closing these gaps, and we’d love to do this with you.

You can start an Action Group for your neighborhood, workplace, school, university, or house of worship. Or you can choose to focus on an issue you care about, such as education, homelessness, or the environment.

The first and most important step is to define the community you want to serve, and start your group.

For now, please don’t worry about how you’ll get people to join it. We’ll work with you on that. But first we need to know that you want to do this.

As with everything we do at Idealist, we’ve started with the minimum set of features, and with your feedback we’ll build up from here.

To start, please let us know if anything is not clear, or if anything is not working the way you think it should. (Feel free to post your questions or ideas right on that page so that everyone can see them.)

Thanks again for your support over the past few weeks. With this last piece in place, we’ll soon be in a position to start promoting this whole initiative more widely, and we look forward to that.
