Resistance is fertile and one of the best ways to continue to grow our movement is to maintain effective communication between our members and allies.
In a city such as New York City, it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle, the everyday grind of maintaining our professional, familial, and comradely relationships. It’s also far too easy to be drowned out amongst the mass media infiltrations exposed to us at our every step, not to mention the (sometimes) endless email chains that even the most organized of us find hard to filter through and stay up-to-date.
In our attempt to help make sure our members and allies never miss crucial news, meetings, events or actions we are introducing the DGR NYC celly group – a quick and efficient way to maintain in-group communication via text messages and mobile devices. Rather than a constant feed of notifications (we already have an email chain for that!), we will use this method for succinct reminders of upcoming events.
It’s quick and easy to sign-up and join the conversation. Anyone can send a message to the entire group and it gets relayed instantaneously. To join, we simply ask that you be a resident of the greater NYC area with a desire to be more active in the movement – this service will not be of much use for members or allies that cannot regularly attend our meetings and/or events.
Simply text @dgrnyc to 23559 to join.
You may be asked to create a username and/or verify membership through an email address. Once completed, you should receive a welcome message from the group via text. If you have any issues or comments, please feel free to contact us – we will be more than happy to assist you.
We will also have a brief introduction to the service at our next member meeting (10/14/13) to make sure that everyone is connected and comfortably acquainted with the process.
