Social Media for Social Justice - Intensive Workshop
Social Media for Social Justice: Intensive Workshop with Deanna Zandt, May 24
Complete workshop description is here: http://bit.ly/HtdMC6
To register for this workshop, you will be asked to complete a short survey on your social media use before completing your payment.
You know about social media. You know that you've got to get on board with it for your organization, or for your own activist work. You may have even signed up for Twitter or Facebook already, but you don't know where to start. What are the right tools to use? What do I say? Why are other people doing this? And, perhaps, most importantly: how the hell do I know if it's working?!
In this introductory intensive workshop, we'll cover everything from the culture and politics of social media (and why that's critical to understand), to the essential elements of a social media strategy, to some tools to manage your presences efficiently, to metrics and analytics to keep you on track.
This workshop is designed for social media beginners who work with social justice movements, labor unions, community organizers, and media makers who want to know how and why to incorporate new tools into their practice.
This workshop takes place Thursday May 24, 2012, 1 to 5 pm at Planned Parenthood Federation of America, 434 W. 33rd Street, (between 9th & 10th Aves), New York, NY 10001
The fee for this 4 hour workshop is $125 per person. After May 10, registration will be $150.
A limited number of scholarships for free and reduced tuition are available. Please send an email to Jen at jen (at) aidandabet.org before May 1 telling us about you and your work to request a scholarship. Scholarship recipients will be notified by May 8.
