Innovations in Organizing in Communities of Color

The impact of new technology and social media has forced a re-calibration of traditional organizing practice. In what ways do these enhance or supplant the key commitments of traditional organizing to constituency building, collective action, and leadership development? In what ways do organizing groups have to adjust their tactics and strategies in order to more fully realize the potential that these innovations bring? This workshop will tackle these questions with experienced ?offline? and ?online? organizers working in communities of color.

Speakers: Francis Calpotura, Kohl Gill, Ana Perez
