Dear Grassroots Organizers,
We are trying to reach representatives of U.S. and Canada-based grassroots social justice organizations to complete a short online survey about globalization and the Internet.We would be grateful for your help spreading the word!
We are academic researchers from the State University of New York-New Paltz (a cultural anthropology professor and student), with no political or religious affiliation.We are interested in the perspectives of groups and networks working on social justice issues, including but not limited to such issues as race, ethnicity, gender, poverty, sexuality, the environment, healthcare, homelessness, immigration, and natural disaster.
If you represent a social movement, civil society organization, grassroots group or network, we hope you will take a moment to complete the survey by November 30.Your honest input will help us better understand how groups in the U.S. and Canada use the Internet to connect to groups elsewhere in the world, and how they view the causes of social inequality around the globe. We plan to present our findings at the World Social Forum in Belém, Brazil in January 2009.
Our survey is entirely anonymous and takes about 20 minutes to complete.As a token of our appreciation, we’ll enter respondents who complete the survey by November 30 into a drawing for a gift certificate for Amazon.com.
You can find the survey online at:http://www.newpaltz.edu/anthropology/survey.html.Please forward this site to an official representative of your organization (one survey per organization).
Thank you for helping us get the word out, and please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments.
