In a rapidly changing world, digital organizing is constantly changing. Just a few years ago, having a website was revolutionary. Now, we often struggle to maintain engagement as best practices fluctuate in effectiveness and new tools and approaches enter the scene. Join us for a training and discussion of what’s next, with a rigorous emphasis on what can work for folks on the ground.
This training is for beginner and intermediate digital organizers. We won’t rely on heavily technical skills, but we will have a fairly high-level conversation and training that will assume some familiarity of digital organizing practices.
