Memes are an important aspect of the digital zeitgeist. They tell you what the internet thinks and helps to create talking points about the moment. In this training, we’ll show you how we use memes to push our movement forward. Unions often create memes to push our message of worker solidarity and a fair economy. Learn about the methods we use to create, distribute and use memes to build worker power!
