Meet the NTEN Community
The NTEN Community is full of great folks. Here are just a few of them.
Justin Perkins, a social entrepreneur, accidental techie, new media marketing expert and former State water resources administrator for a major watershed in Colorado, joined Care2 in January 2006. Justin develops partnerships with nonprofits and customizes strategic campaigns for them to reach Care2's audience of 8.7 million members, or leverage Care2's audience to reach other networks. He also develops new tools to help nonprofits with marketing and fundraising.

Democracy in Action
Charles is the Outreach and Support Manager at Democracy in Action (DIA), a progressive nonprofit that helps other progressive nonprofits use an online database - often called a constituent relationship manager (CRM) to communicate, fundraise, and advocate for social change. Charles's job is to help clients in the New York and the Northeast get the most out of DiA, and to connect new nonprofits with their online platform. But no matter where you live or work, Charles is happy to talk about nonprofit technology with you!
Adam grew up near Nashville, TN, and graduated from the University of Tennessee with a B.A. in Rhetoric and Writing. After college, electoral politics took him to Connecticut, Oklahoma, back to Tennessee, and then to New Hampshire. After that, he settled in Hartford, CT, to work on nonprofit legislative campaigns; focusing on marriage for same-sex couples, gender identity and expression protections, various civil justice issues, and now, universal health care. Adam has always described himself as an "accidental techie," but is happy to have just landed a job that pays him for spending hours on Facebook and Twitter. When not creating advocacy campaigns, Adam enjoys reading about the American Revolution, listening to This American Life, playing with his dog, and tallying how many times his coworkers want to put "URGENT!!!" in their member emails.
