Recently, one of my favorite aut-parent blogs has moved to change.org. There are a fair number of causes that have discussions going on there. Two that are the most related to this blog are public education and autism. Change.org is a "social action network" with some interesting discussions (not that I totally agree with everything that's being said) and the opportunity for something to actually come out of these discussions. This is a generally progressive site and there also seems to be some sort of connection with the Obama administration, if only as a conduit for ideas.
Here's some of their text from their about us page:
"Today as citizens of the world, we face a daunting array of social and environmental problems ranging from health care and education to global warming and economic inequality. For each of these issues, whether local or global in scope, there are millions of people who care passionately about working for change but lack the information and opportunities necessary to translate their interest into effective action.
Change.org aims to address this need by serving as the central platform informing and empowering movements for social change around the most important issues of our time. "
I think it's worth checking out.
