I have to recommend drupal too.

PROS: Aside from ease of use, it is free and all its modules are free 
and it is widely used in the non-profit / radical community which makes 
cross-networking very easy.

CONS: you need to know some php or css to create a site that looks 
really different from the basic formats / themes.
