"Someone has to set up a local Ushahidi instance on servers or something like that, and then spread the word in the area about how to use it. Not my area of geekspertise, I'm afraid."

"Seriously. I just happened to be lucky enough to live a block from a station where hubby is friends with the owners, so we got good intel quickly. But for less lucky folks, it was a freaking nightmare."

EVOKE MANIFESTO

Evoke is you. It's me. It's everyone. Every time you help someone, every time you march for a cause or participate in public debate, you are carrying the spirit of an Evoke agent within you. You have the power to create change - all you have to do is step up and play your part.

Evokers could set up unbiased platform wikis about the issues at stake, help set up community voter registration and fraud-protection/watchdog groups and get information on any crooked dealings to the general public through various media and sources.



I also think Evoke should have campus groups on as many colleges and other school sites as possible. Wouldn't it be… Continue

Local crisis information twitter tags

Here is my call to action:



In a crisis, it's important to be able to see what's happening in your area quickly so you can respond.

Listen to the Right People

It's impossible to find a good solution to a problem you don't understand. I think that the first place to start when looking for a solution is understanding the problem by listening to the people it impacts the most. The knowledge one gains creates a foundation for a solution to be built on.Listening to the right people also leads to understanding the circ***tances of the problem: what other social, cultural or political elements contribute to this problem? What has already been tried? Who…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
