Two sites that I am familiar with are:

http://www.moveon.org
http://www.winwithoutwar.org

I am on MoveOn.org's mailing list, and they regularly inform people about
concrete actions taking place, and urging people to take specific actions, both
individually and as a group.  A creative online action that they are organizing
this Wednesday (Feb. 26) is a "Virtual March on Washington".  They are
organizing people to call their representatives in the House of Representatives
and the Senate; a different constituent to call each of the 535 of them each
minute for the whole day.  The online registration process along with the mail
list announcements allow an action within a period of time that simply could
not have been taken without the use of the internet.  Notably, a message today
announced that they had already fully scheduled phone calls to be made for all
states except for a handful of states with the smallest populations.
