OC's 7th annual conference has the theme "Making Technology Relevant to Nonprofit and Social Change Groups." We aim to present tools that make the sometimes challenging tasks associated with nonprofits and organizing much easier to accomplish, so that our groups and movements can better achieve their goals.

As always, the Grassroots Use of Technology conference is one of the only events that brings technology and endusers together, allowing us to learn from each other.
