Social d̶i̶s̶t̶a̶n̶c̶e̶ media: Building community with purpose through digital organizing


Facilitator: Alexandra Dildine (Johns Hopkins University)

Organizing in the time of the Coronavirus is disorienting, to say the least. How do you prevent your hard-fought achievements from falling apart? How do you sustain or even escalate them? It's not as simple as just "taking it to Twitter." This session will dig into the principles that underlie successful digital organizing so that online tools can assist your efforts, not diffuse them.

Alexandra is a PhD student in American Politics at Johns Hopkins University. She has worked on political campaigns since 2011 and was the director of digital organizing at Organizing for Action (OFA), the network of communities that emerged during the Obama campaigns, where she focused on training and developing local leaders to advocate for local and national change. Her studies encompass the political imperative of building strong, cohesive community and the role that surveillance capitalism plays in fracturing grassroots collective action.

This training will be RECORDED.
