New partner – East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation


A while ago I met Gail McGuire, Assistant Project Manager, East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation. Upon describing our ECC Connected! project, she was excited to help. She is working with Lion Creek Crossings, a multi-family housing development in East Oakland. As her organization is serving the same area as ECC we can work togther to identify key community issues to use in training as well as in developing the online civic action component. Very exciting and happy to have Gail and her project to work with!

Getting started

A group of us has gathered to start a community technology project we’re calling ECC Connected!

With the help of BrainJams, the Social Media Club my colleague Scott of SeniorNet and I will offer a series of trainings to the participants of the Eastmont Computing Center.

 The hope is that the folks will find these tools fun and useful in getting their message across, especially to civic leaders.

The team has had three meetings and a proposal is being finalized for funding from the Community Technology Foundation of California (CTFC).

 This space will serve as a record of the development of the project.
