We work in a highly-engaged, easily-enraged communications environment. We are surrounded by crisis all the time; poverty, racism, inequity and injustice are all clear and present dangers. Should we react to everything we see? Are there some situations where that might not be helpful? If we are going to do sustainable work we must have sustained and sustainable strategies for responding to crises. We’ll offer a rubric for folks to determine when to react and how.
Amanda asks herself and the people she works the tough questions about communications, making sure they are reaching the right people with the right message at the right time. She has recently provided this service for clients like the ACLU of Northern California, Forward Together, The San Francisco Office of Transgender Initiatives, and the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights.
She has more than fifteen years of experience working with organizations in labor, legal rights, children’s services and food insecurity. She has placed thousands of stories in every medium of the mainstream press and created buzz for campaigns in social media and progressive media.
