Volunteer meeting Thursday 5 March

If you want to get more involved with digital rights and ORG then your first stop should be a volunteer meeting, where we run through current volunteer works and dish out new tasks.

Please put your name down below if you intend to attend (or hit us up on the Facebook Event).

The next meet will be at 1830 on Thursday 5 March, at our office, which is 7th floor, 100 Grays Inn Road, London WC1X 8AL.

And as usual, we'll have the IRC running (freenode.irc.net, #openrightsgroup, webchat) so that non-locals can participate.

Any questions? Then email info at openrightsgroup dot org or phone +44 (0) 20 7096 1079
