With our current state of affairs in the U.S., it is easy to wake up each day dejected and pessimistic about the future.
But for 3 days last week, I woke up knowing I would be heading to the annual Nonprofit Technology Network (NTEN) conference. Detractors may say we were in a bubble, surrounding ourselves with idealism run amok, but for 3 days I saw everything that is great, compassionate and hopeful about our country. I met hundreds of people who choose to devote their work life to putting the needs of others before themselves – they deserve far more recognition then they get.
While the NTEN attendees are on the front lines fighting their battles, we at Grassroots Unwired strive to be the support behind the scenes they can use to make their efforts more efficient and effective. Technology can be a great equalizer across society and our goal is to make sure it supports those who fighting the good fight so admirably and selflessly. It is humbling to have even a small opportunity to be a part of this.
If you were there and we didn’t have a chance to speak:
It was a pleasure to be a part of the NTEN conference and we not only look forward to being their next year but participating in their events all year long.
