I was just alerted to a benefit coming up for MoveSmart.org by Justin Massa – the founder of MoveSmart.org. It is a great non-profit tech project that I think we should all support in some way. Why not check out the benefit where, among other things, you will get a sneak peak of MoveSmart.org. Here are the details on the event and on MoveSmart.org that Justin sent me.
Integration 2.0: A Benefit for MoveSmart.org
Tuesday, January 29th, 2008
Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal (Sears Tower, 78th Floor)
Until now, information on neighborhoods has been buried in the back of academic reports, pinned to community center bulletin boards, and locked in data sets only available to planners, inaccessible to those who would benefit from it the most: housing seekers looking for a better neighborhood. MoveSmart.org will leverage the power of this information by combining these and other data sources into a single mapping engine built into a full-featured site that includes guides, tools, calculators, forums, and social networks, all designed to foster racial and economic integration.
Join us on January 29th for MoveSmart.org’s inaugural event, a wine reception and silent auction which will include an exclusive sneak peak of MoveSmart.org and it’s innovative features. Find out what prompted Aurie Pennick, executive director of the Field Foundation, to say, “This is where fair housing needs to go.”
Tickets are priced at $30, with a limited number of non-profit and government tickets at $15. Proceeds will benefit MoveSmart.org, a not for profit organization operating under the fiscal sponsorship of the Chicago Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights.
Purchase tickets at http://movesmart.eventbrite.com. For more information, including sponsorship opportunities, contact Justin [at] MoveSmart [DOT] org.
