Hustle is the leading peer-to-peer messaging tool used by campaigns and nonprofits around the country. Most recently Hustle has worked with groups like Sanders for President, Planned Parenthood, Everytown for Gun Safety, and the Human Rights Campaign to enable them to communicate with their donors and supporters in a high personalized way. In this training, we’ll do a quick intro on what Hustle is and how you use it, then our trainers will dive into expert tips and tricks on using SMS to communicate with your supporters.

This training is best suited for organizers and data/outreach teams using SMS to communicate with their supporters. Though participants do not need any background with Hustle, they should be familiar with basic text messaging tactics.
