Digital organizing techniques grounded in relational organizing have been key to every recent progressive success. Join us as we show you how GIFs and memes–the shareable, social language of the internet–can carry your message further and better than words alone. Content-based organizing can power up your outreach and engagement work and help you reach more people with content that speaks to their emotions, not just their brains. Using GIFs and memes informed by powerhouses like MoveOn, LCV, Planned Parenthood, and countless grassroots organizers, we’ll help you make your digital organizing more effective and turn your contacts into advocates who spread your message even further.
