Email is THE most powerful one-to-many communications channel available to progressive organizers. Done right, it delivers a powerful message for your candidate or cause, raises huge sums of money and mobilizes volunteers quickly and cheaply. Done wrong, it annoys your supporters, breeds negativity and breaks trust—or just goes to spam folders and is ignored. Come learn how your program can sparkle with best practices, grow your supporters’ engagement, and max out your ability to fundraise. I’ll share lessons learned from more than 13 years experience managing email programs for CREDO, Bernie 2016, NextGen, Vote.org and Mozilla—and discuss with you where email is going over the next few years.
