Get engaged with our teams, news and grassroots action with our Slack team. Slack is a multi-platform tool (macOS, Windows, iOS, Android, etc) that allows our team to stay in touch with each other. You can post messages containing links, test, images, video, etc, so that our entire community can benefit from your insight and action. Links to download Slack for your devices are below!
Hey, IP - what's a channel? - A channel is a section of the Slack team that allows discussion and files on a specific topic or kind of action, or perhaps a "team" within our organization to collect their thoughts, writing, images, files, and interactions in one place - for that topic! Rather than all over the place and having to "go find a thread" - and channels are searchable!
To get started, signup for our Slack Team. Within 24 hours, one of our Slack team's administrators will provide a registration link to you to join our team. You'll be added to a number of Channels for various kinds of action and discussion. If you'd like to get involved with one of our teams (research, technology, direct action, liaison, etc), we have channels for each of those teams to help coordinate work amongst the members of that team which you can also join.
You can also find all these links, or have Slack automatically send you a text message with a link to download it from Slack's site.
