PowerBase Initial Organizational Training Agenda
How to Request Support and Find Resources
The following questions are intended to provoke discussion more than nail down concrete answers. Feel free to answer as loosely or specifically as you feel useful to your organizing needs.
Answer for each of the social media accounts you use regularly.
Do you post from an organizational account, from your organizers' individual work accounts, or from your organizer's personal accounts?
If posting from an organizational account, can you identify the individuals personal accounts from your posts (e.g. via likes, reposts, etc)?

This REVERB Online webinar, originally recorded on March 5, 2015, features a discussion with Alicia Garza, co-founder of #BlackLivesMatter, with lessons learned from her experience using messaging, technology and social media to organize a 21st century movement that confronts racism and the murders of unarmed black men and children. This discussion highlights how the #BlackLivesMatter movement has been effective in using technology to build a movement.
The 2-day Grassroots Fundraising & Technology Training will help groups understand how to integrate their grassroots fundraising with their on-going organizing and communications activities. We emphasize multi-channel approaches to grassroots fundraising so that online and on-the-ground activities are highly coordinated and inter-connected.
