Yes, please do! Our public beta is open to anyone, so point your friends towards

The beta version of CivNet supports English and Spanish. We will add support for other languages as the platform grows.

Users may post content in any language. We hope to add support for auto-translation of user-generated content in 2016.

CivNet has over 400 pre-registered Beta users, mostly from our pilot community (Albuquerque, NM). We've recruited a wide variety of community leaders and members including people involved in the South West Alliance of Neighbors, the District 4 Coalition of Neighborhood Associations, the International District Healthy Communities Coalition, Albuquerque Public Schools, the Railyards Market, UrbanABQ, MillenialABQ, BikeABQ, and Albuquerque business and entrepreneurial groups.
CivNet will eventually provide action plan templates and organizing resources that will help users strategize how to best make an impact on an issue they care about.
During our Beta period, CivNet will focus on key issues identified by local users in our pilot communities: education, land use, transportation, economic development, poverty, mental and behavioral health, police and law enforcement, the environment, and immigration. This list will expand over time, so our users may use CivNet to address any civic issue they care about.
