Hope your year is starting off well. We at SWOP are now celebrating our 25th Anniversary!!
Several months ago I talked to Arif about SWOP's desire to get GIS training to help in our organizing campaigns. Arif said that PTP might be intereted in possibly sponsoring some trainings on GIS if there was enough interest. PTP could work on getting donations of the GIS software from ESRI and looking for some trainers. He suggested that I post a notice on this website.
So, please let me know if any of you might be interested in participating in GIS trainings. I talked to Mike at Southern Echo and they've used GIS very effectively in their work. We could really use it for our voter work and our ongoing campaign work.
Hope to hear from you soon.
