Join this training and learn how to use Facebook Live to reach tens or hundreds of thousands of people with your action or protest. In this interactive workshop, we’ll break down the components to a successful Facebook Live broadcast: how to script your broadcast, how to build an audience, how to interact with viewers and how to move people from Facebook spectators to movement participants. You’ll also leave with a list of inexpensive gear that will improve the quality of your broadcast.
This training is best suited for those who use dramatic actions to achieve their goals. The lessons from this training can be used by an activist with an Indivisible group, a local or statewide organization or a national organization.
