Causecast–an on-line community dedicated to using media in social justice
Today, during my web crawling endeavors, I ran across the site for Causecast, a space created specifically for a variety of social cause groups–including human rights organizations–to network and share media. The site features video footage presented by member groups and organized under the broad categories of Animlas, Arts, Enviornment, Health, and Human Rights. As the two text quotes below demonstrate, Causecast is a tech start up company that seeks to create awareness of and attract financial support to serious non-profit initiatives in the areas listed. The site also offers links to resources for becoming a volunteer with organizations or community actions that you support. –Sarah
