Site Launch for CivicActions - MeNotMeth.org

MeNotMeth.org launched today. What a great web site project! The focus of the site is a part of a larger campaign discouraging meth use focusing on gay and minority men. As the Technical Lead for this project, I had the chance to direct a team of engineers for configuration, customization, and theming the site.

The team was great and you can learn more about all of the great folks working with CivicActions on the People page.
