Justice and Health Connect Toolkit - Social Ink

Continuing our work with nonprofits in New York City working for sensible policy within the justice system  and social justice in general, we recently celebrated the launch of the Justice and Health Connect platform, a national resource for data sharing between professionals in the health and justice sectors. As we describe in our portfolio entry, JH Connect ties together research and data in a dynamically searchable information bank, presenting resources for professionals and those working to reshape the system. In addition, a narrative based toolkit guides users through background information and connective strands, while complementary background and key fact modules round out the information-rich website. We're thrilled to be working the good folks over at Vera, and hope to participate in new web initiatives in the near future!

Bridges to Community Homepage - by Social Ink

Bridges to Community is a local, New York area non-profit doing amazing work in Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. By organizing volunteer trips to specific sites in these countries, Bridges builds connections across an array of program areas to help improve housing, education, health, and economic development. As part of our work building websites for nonprofits, Social Ink worked with Bridges to Community to overhaul their design and their content organization (what we call information architecture). With a rebuilt site, Bridges can now directly organize trips and supporting events and other activities, via on-site payments and intelligent workflows which bring users to 'checkout' endpoints based on their preferences and other information. Read about the project on our portfolio entry, and check out the Bridges to Community website!

A touchscreen and keyboard compliant slideshow show off Andersen's modeling photos.

May Andersen, a model and artist currently living in New York City, has launched a brand new portfolio website, happily implemented by our team here at Social Ink! The site showcases not only Andersen's modeling work (did you miss her in the 2003 Sports Illustrated Swim Suit edition?), but also her photography and art, essays, and a blog. This site posed a unique challenge--to splice in Andersen's instagram photography into the content of the site itself. Through some custom code, we were able to provide yet another easy way for non-technical clients to update there site, no code required! Read our full write up on the project on your portfolio page.

USA v Keys Homepage

We'll let the story tell itself:

The Department of Justice (DOJ) is prosecuting former Reuters Social Media Editor Matthew Keys under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act for allegedly conspiring with, and aiding and abetting, Anonymous, in the alteration of a paragraph of a Los Angeles Times website article. The paragraph reads as follows: Pressure builds in House to elect CHIPPY 1337. House Democratic leader Steny Hoyer sees ‘very good things’ in deal cut which will see uber skid Chippy 1337 take his rightful place, as head of the Senate, reluctant House Democrats told to SUCK IT UP. By CHIPPYS NO1 FAN For this, Matthew Keys faces a maximum sentence of 25 years in jail and $750,000.00 in fines. On April 23, 2013, he pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Information packed home page with clear presentation

We're delighted to announce two new launches of the last month, the progressive and activist journalism site Waging Nonviolence, and the fresh, exciting classical music guild Concert Artists Guild. Waging Nonviolence's exciting mission:

Waging Nonviolence is a source for original news and analysis about struggles for justice and peace around the globe. Ordinary people build power using nonviolent strategies and tactics every day, even under the most difficult of circumstances, yet these stories often go unnoticed or misunderstood by a media industry fixated on violence and celebrity.
Concert Artist Guild's mission is also one of helping the community:
Founded in 1951 with a mission to discover, nurture & promote young musicians, Concert Artists Guild helps artists launch sustainable careers. CAG provides support to a roster of talented artists during a critical and formative time: between completion of formal studies and the achievement of an established career.
Visit the portfolio pages of Waging Nonviolence or Concert Artists Guild today!

Pinkerton Foundation Homepage | Websites for Foundations

Social Ink is proud to continue our efforts in Community and Education work with the launch of a new website for The Pinkerton Foundation. Established in 1966, the foundation:

supports community-based programs for children, youth and families in economically disadvantaged areas in New York City.  Although we consider a wide range of youth development initiatives, Pinkerton favors direct-service programs that have one overriding goal: to help young people reach their full potential. Most of the programs we support take place in the after-school, weekend or summer hours and focus on providing opportunities for academic development, career readiness and cultural enrichment. We also support a number of programs that offer a way forward for young people after an encounter with the criminal justice system or years in foster care.
Read more about our work with this passionate organization on the Pinkerton Foundation's portfolio page.
