Description
A panel of community organizers discusses how to use your own or an organization's blog, website, or social media sites in order to create social change. They discuss how to blog, maintain a website, or Tweet in strategic ways that promote social justice work and grows a community around your cause, showing how social media spreads messages and strengthen grassroots movements. Panelists include Adaora Asala from Queer Women of Color and Friends (QWOC+ Boston), Amanda Johnston from Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD), Nilagia McCoy from Cambridge Community Television (CCTV) and MITs Cambridge Science Festival and Robbie Samuels from Socializing for Justice (So Just) and GLAD.
