CHALLENGE

The Enough Project, a project of the Center for American Progress, required an improved web site to support its goal of building a permanent constituency against genocide and crimes against humanity.

Its first-generation web site was too publication-centric and users found it difficult to navigate.

The new website therefore needed to overcome these challenges and still meet two key objectives: 1) Provide detailed, lengthy policy analysis on issues related to genocide and crimes against humanity; 2) Engage and motivate activists and provide rapid, accessible policy summaries for news media and bloggers.

FORUM ONE SOLUTION

Enough sought out Forum One to design and develop their revised site using the Drupal open source content management system.

The resulting site greatly enhanced the organizations online presence by providing new tools for interactivity between the organization and its activists:

  • A new blog, entitled "Enough Said," provides a central area for updates and enables engaging conversation with constituents.
  • Activists can now connect with the organization by signing a petition or exploring the organization's presence within a number of social networks that are easily accessible from the site.
  • A new "Conflicts Area" section provides detailed information about the countries and regions where Enough focuses its work, including Congo, Sudan, Somalia, and Zimbabwe.
  • The site's Publications section has been substantially improved, and practical policy solutions can now be browsed by topic or conflict area.
  • ABOUT THE ENOUGH PROJECT

    Enough was founded in 2006 by a small group of concerned policymakers and activists who wanted to transform its frustration about inaction into pragmatic solutions and hope.
