The term “grassroots” has been used to describe the political might of everyday people for more than 100 years; however, a rising tide of 21st century tools is forever changing the way we think about engaging our communities. Join us for an exploration of how traditional cornerstones of grassroots movements can be accomplished more quickly and effectively than ever before. This fun and interactive demonstration will cover the latest technologies in civic engagement and how those tools can help you collect powerful data through direct communication with your community—data that can then be used to drive growth, participation, fundraising and awareness while measuring the impact of your efforts.
The training is intended for a broad audience—those curious about civic technology and how it can help amplify a cause, as well as those looking for new ways of approaching an industry that is ripe for innovation. The skill level of this training starts at a basic level but dives into information that even seasoned organizers can use.
