Digital Engagement During Times of Crisis

Natasha Madison (VP of Community & Partnerships at New/Mode)

The global crisis has exposed an ever-growing number of inequities and injustices in our systems. In response, progressive organizations are getting creative about connecting and engaging their communities, and holding decision-makers accountable. Join us to hear how campaigns – large and small – are pivoting to keep their movement and momentum going. The session content will include adaptive campaigning, with case studies on the daily crises our movements are facing and take-on with little-to-no time to plan, including racial justice and defunding police.
