Set up a dedicated phone number, email address, and/or Slack channel that you and group members can use to communicate without ever signing in to CivNet.
Add your group members’ contact information. Group members choose whether they want to communicate via email, text, or Slack.
When you send a message from web, email, text, or Slack each group member will receive it and be able to reply on their preferred platform.

Yes, CivNet groups are private. Only you and your members can see your group. In the future, we may add the ability to mark your group as discoverable. Non-members still wouldn’t be able to see group membership or content, but they could search for groups by themes and request to join yours.
Currently, CivNet employs standard security protocols for a web app, such as https, to protect your private information. We do not currently have encryption for messages. We are considering adding message encryption in the future, but we may never be able to offer end-to-end encryption because we cannot control the encryption standards of integrated platforms such as email and text.
