In our online world, digital tactics must be fully embedded for campaign strategies to be effective. But, many organizations have divided “field” and “digital,” making it hard to build alignment. We have a solution for that! We’ll help you build a toolkit for digital and field campaign success: from knowing what tools are out there to developing compelling calls to action to keep activists engaged today and for the long haul. We’ll also talk about using storytelling to uplift those closest to injustice—putting our progressive values into action. Field and digital alignment is a must if we are to win in 2020 and advance with the hard work of enacting progressive policies.
