August is here, let's celebrate Drupal! Why? - do we need a reason?
While there is a regular monthly meetup there is also a mission to build a Drupal as a Service full featured distribution of Drupal for organizing and campaigns. There is NationBuilder and other proprietary tools that are available, but why not a Drupal solution?

Come learn about the Drutopia distribution and how grassroots groups will be able to easily create a Drupal 8 site with pre-configured selectable features and the SAAS hosting option.

So for those outside the Drupal/FreeSoftware community, I've been skipping over Drutopia and just talking about Solidarity. I find that people just get confused with the relationship between Drutopia and Solidarity and it's really Solidarity that is going to be most interesting and relevant to them.

So with that in mind, here's a first draft of text for the one page informational sheet.

Our movements are growing and more easily coordinating with one another to live out these values of solidarity, but all too often we’re dependent on platforms and tools that don’t have our best interests in mind.

Solidarity is a member-based, Libre Software as a Service tool for grassroots organizations to effectively network and organize online.

The platform is built around four main features: groups, campaigns, actions and news.

A hosted option is available for $50/month which provides membership to Solidarity, covers security updates for the site and priority in determining the roadmap for future development.
