You have found a page for the group supporting the Compassion In Action conference through technology. Included in the effort is fostering community before the event, including remote people during the event, and distributing information after the event.

An intention is to support the conference enough to engage participants in shaping technology use for the larger NVC USA Project.

Website for conference:


People helping out so far include Rick Smith, Tony Varghese, User:John Abbe, User:Lmarvell, User:Parenthesis Eye (aka (I)An-ok), Lucy Perry and Mark Schultz.
